The expanding visual effects and post-production boutique formerly known as 1.1 VFX has set up shop in the offices of Santa Monica production company Bully Pictures under the new name Mr. Wolf. 1.1 VFX launched back in 2005 “as the finishing arm of Motion Theory and continued on at edit house Cutters.”

The move and name change were instigated by creative directors Danny Yoon and Duy Nguyen, and executive producer Mike Pryor. The new space “includes a bevy of resources for visual effects, compositing, editorial finishing and digital color correction, as well as room for further expansion.” Mr. Wolf’s credits include recent work on American Hustle, From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series and the FXX series Ali G Rezurection, as well as commercial spots for Toyota, Jaguar, Fiat, Burger King and Pizza Hut. Mr. Wolf’s new space within Bully Pictures’ offices “sets the stage for innovative collaboration and a great single source solution for advertising agencies and clients.”

Could the New Myspace Really Be Cool? We’re Almost Convinced

I’m sitting in Salt Lake City Airport, shocked at the number of people wearing flip flops, and I want nothing more than to be in Myspace’s fun room of young, beautiful artists grabbing at one another amidst fluorescent confetti. Their instruments and skateboards may be breakable but they are not. They smash faces and tangle limbs and fall on the floor, but this video gives us the sense that these fiery singers, models, DJs, and rappers will never flame out.

After Justin Timberlake’s reboot, can the same be said for Myspace (capital S begone)? We weren’t sure the social network could drag itself away from obsolescence, but this spot seems to be doing just that, and with a bang. If Myspace is a room filled with the likes of DIIV, Iggy Azalea, Pharrell Williams, Sky Ferreira and Schoolboy Q, then it is anything but irrelevant. If you don’t know those names, you better learn them. And check out the new Myspace while you’re at it; it seems to be the cool thing to do.

Credits and MySpace announce note after the jump.
