BlackboxFX is a sister company of xRez, acting as a collaboration with ace 3D artist Ethan Summers. BlackboxFX’s mission is to employ highend creative visual effects talent toward socially meaningful projects, both in the entertainment, scientific, and environmental action sectors. With extensive backgrounds in feature film visual effects and illustration, both Blackbox and xRez share an enthusiasm for applying 3D computer graphics to projects which can help educate, illuminate or persuade the general public or policy makers.
History has proven the value of powerful photographic images instigating change, but digital media has yet to rise to that task. Whether recreating historic events in film, revealing complex processes in scientific visualization, or illustrating environmental change, BlackboxFX can offer powerful leverage for filmmakers, scientific researchers, or political activists.
