FINAL CUT’S SIGNIFICANT OTHERS HIRES CD DIRK GREENE
From the release:
Final Cut post-production arm, Significant Others, with the hiring of Creative Director Dirk Greene. Greene will be overseeing Significant Others’ growth into a full service visual effects boutique.
As a visual effects heavyweight, Greene’s career spans seven years at Absolute as Creative
Director, and well over a decade as Senior Flame Artist/VFX Supervisor at The Mill. British-born
Greene joined The Mill London in its early years, and was a contributing force in the facility’s
growth to top-tier status. As a principal creative, working on numerous high profile commercials
and music videos, Greene along with a small team of Mill UK employees, led the company’s first
global expansion, with the launch of The Mill New York.
In 2008, after twelve years at The Mill, Greene once again embarked on the challenge of building a
brand stateside, joining Absolute as Creative Director and developing the New York office from
one room into a fully operating visual effects and CG facility.
Anyone familiar with ads will surely have come across Greene’s mind-blowing artistry. He created
the visual effects for some of the most acclaimed spots for Levis, Nike, Adidas, Sony, BMW and
Guinness, plus numerous Super Bowl hits for Fed Ex, Snickers, Verizon, Budweiser and the NFL.
He has continued on this path with his first project for Significant Others, an upcoming Samsung
spot directed by design master, GMUNK (Bradley G Munkowitz), of Tron and Oblivion effects fame.
He has won a number of awards including Clios for the ground-breaking AT&T Olympic
campaign, ‘The New Possible’ and The White Stripes ‘The Hardest Button to Button’, for which
he was also nominated for an MTV Video Music Award for Best Visual Effects.
Final Cut/Significant Others President, Stephanie Apt notes, “Enlisting a creative director of this
magnitude immediately elevates the quality of our work, and will propel Significant Others to the
next level of creative artistry. Dirk’s hire is just the beginning of our continued effort to offer more
complex solutions to clients with a full team of talent.”
“I couldn’t have found a better a better home for this vision,” adds Dirk. “Launching with the
support of such a renowned brand, we can continue to maintain the Final Cut aesthetic while
building our own unique place in the industry. We want to produce the best-looking work, with
great people, in a truly collaborative way.”
