Miamis Lava Pictures has combined forces with Moving Forward Studios to create Lava Studio, an independent design, animation and effects boutique. After four years of steady growth, Lavas Robert Kirkpatrick has established a spacious creative environment for Lava Studio in the heart of Miamis advertising and post community. Joining Robert is Moving Forward Studios seasoned designer and animator Leo Lovera. Leo has collaborated with Lava on several highly visible projects, including compositing and visual effects for the award-winning rebranding of Animal Planet International, the Hollywood feature ?Derailed, and spots for GM, Carnival Cruise Lines, and many others.
Kirkpatrick and Lovera are among Miamis most experienced and sought-after broadcast artists. ?Together, we make an amazing team, says Kirkpatrick. ?Best of all, we both love what we do, and we enjoy working together. We draw strength from our common passion for perfection, and we benefit as a company from our rich combined experience and our very different backgrounds. Kirkpatrick began his career in New York, and started Lava after five years as Creative Director and Senior Flame Artist at Deep Blue Sea. A native of Caracas, Leo came to Miami in 1998, following a stint as CGI Director for a feature film in Argentina in 1996. He started Moving Forward Studios after 4 years as Flame Artist and Senior CGI Animator at Miamis Fireworks Motion Media. ?Our approach is to work hand in hand with our clients to offer the best possible solution for every project, says Lovera. ?We offer the powerful combination of our unique talents and years of expertise, so we understand the job, get it done right and make it a pleasant experience
Also new to the Lava Studio team is popular bilingual Producer Steve Schuff. Steves experience as a visual effects and animation producer is highly valued in Miami and throughout Latin America. Most recently Steve was Executive Producer for Mexico Citys Virgin Studios (now Rushes). ?Steve provides the outstanding production skills, communication, and structure that make Lava Studio run. He also mixes a wicked martini! says Kirkpatrick. ?Together we have built a unique creative environment where our clients can expect their message to be understood and expressed the way it deserves.
