Cambridge, MA - September 9, 2015 - GenArts, Inc. is excited to announce the hiring of Brian Fox as Product Manager and Creative Director for Sapphire visual effects plugins. He will be the first to debut the new features in the forthcoming release, Sapphire 9, this week at IBC in Amsterdam (September 11-15).
A 17-year veteran of the post production industry, Fox has worked in many different roles during his career, including editor, animator, and videographer.  “I’ve always loved television and film,” says Fox, “and I’ve been lucky enough to have found a career within them.” In his most recent role as Senior Creative Editor at Viewpoint Creative, Fox worked with some of the world’s largest entertainment companies including HBO, Discovery, ESPN, ABC, CBS, HGTV, Travel Channel, Staples, Reebok, and Microsoft.
“I’m thrilled to join the team at GenArts,” says Fox.  “I’ve been a passionate fan and devout user of Sapphire for most of my career. Having an opportunity to play a role in the future of Sapphire is beyond exciting, and I can’t wait to officially kick things off at IBC.”
GenArts can be found at exhibit stand J05 in hall 7 where Fox and the team will demo the new features in Sapphire 9 on Adobe® After Effects® CC, Adobe Premiere® Pro CC – both part of Adobe Creative Cloud®, and Avid Media Composer®.
