"Lost" Hires Local VFX Firm

"Lost" just hired Honolulu-based VFX company Cause & F(x) Pictures to be the on-the-ground eyes and ears for Emmy-nominated visual effects supervisor Kevin Blank during production, as well as design and create digital visual effects for "Lost's" upcoming season.

Cause & F(x) Pictures, a small firm of four founded in January 2004, boasts an impressive resume, having done VFX work on "The Matrix Reloaded," "The Day After Tomorrow" and "X-Men."

Hawaii Film Commissioner Donne Dawson said, "The network will see firsthand what Hawaii talent can do in the special effects/post-production world."

In the face of the
how-low-can-you-go production incentive trend in the U.S., many states are trying instead (or in addition) to boost their economies by developing their digital media, animation, and post-production sectors.
