In this new role, Johnny will lead the growth and expansion of FuseFX into new avenues of VFX and new studio locations. He will also continue to lead the business development group at FuseFX and be front and center with clients of the global studio.
Johnny brings over 20 years of experience to the table from small start-up operations to large-scale global studios, having worked as an artist, manager, producer, and in executive positions across a wide scope of productions. After rising through the executive ranks at Deluxe, he joined FuseFX and took on the role of Executive Producer - Los Angeles. Later he was promoted to Head of Studio LA and Global VP of Production.

I look forward to embracing emerging technologies and promoting new levels of engagement across our offices as we navigate the expansive new roads ahead with our incredible global team,” says Johnny.
“I have been working closely with Johnny for the last few years as he has taken on more executive management of FuseFX. After starting at FuseFX just a few years ago, he quickly became an integral part of our leadership team. He has continued to prove his commitment and leadership, both in our LA studio and globally. Johnny taking the title of President of FuseFX reinforces the leadership role he established some time ago,“ says CEO and founder of FuseFX David Altenau.
