Raised by Wolves was founded in the summer of 2013 by one of the worlds leading VFX artists Jon Hollis and renowned colourist Tareq Kubaisi as a boutique visual effects studio offering high calibre bespoke visual effects services for a variety of artistic motion content.
Highly regarded amongst his peers and clients as one of the finest Colourists, Tareq continues to grade feature films and commercials for internationally renowned directors and brands. These include Wim Wenders, Joe Wright, Sam Taylor-Wood, Jonas Akerlund, Chanel, Jaeger and Stella Artois among very many others. By applying his twenty plus years of experience with charm and sensitivity, Tareq’s ability to put his clients at ease at the point when they first appreciate the full scope of their film-making has helped elevate him to positions of Creative Directorships at VTR, Glassworks and Prime Focus. Now he has placed his talents at Raised By Wolves, where the boutique environment allows work to be crafted in a creative environment and the picture is paramount.
Starting out in dim theatres, moving through dappled Costa Rican jungles and finally finding a natural home in the darkness of the grading suite, Vic’s exceptional eye and sensitivity for detailed work has lead to his being much sought after by new and established Directors alike. Vic has immersed himself in projects for Nike, Chanel, O2 and Sony and has worked on films for musicians including Adele, Emeli Sandé and Nick Cave. His vast camera knowledge and ability to apply traditional techniques alongside emerging ones makes him one of the most diverse and cannily resourceful colourists in the industry. His passionate approach to grading has lead to Vic being involved in art projects for the Chapman brothers and work for Alexander McQueen, for whom he graded the famous Kate Moss ‘Peppers Ghost’ projection.
From SVC, The Mill and into setting up Smoke & Mirrors, whilst working on projects with industry giants that include Graham Fink, Walter Campbell, Jonathan Glazer, Chris Palmer and Frank Budgen. Jon Hollis has become a multi award winning artist.
Internationally acknowledged as a master of his craft, both creatively and technically, he has most recently been applauded with a Special Recognition award for his pioneering work in Flame. Jon continues to push the boundaries of his tools as far and as fast as they will allow, regularly delivering above and beyond expectations.
