Brandon started his VFX career in 2003. He originally went to school for concept design and illustration, and while attending art school he got offered a freelance gig. The University of Washington was looking to do some scientific visualization of shore erosion. Having no clue how to do fluid simulations Brandon google up fluid simulation software and that led him to RealFlow. He taught hismelf how to use it and fell in love with it. From there he dabbled in other pieces of software and other types of VFX. He made a short demo reel full of tests and sent it around to games studios in the area and got hired at Surreal studio (now Midway Games) from there he kept growing as an artist and has gotten to work at many of the best studios in the industry Blur, Scanline, and Luma Pictures to name a few.

Mark Stasiuk and his team at Fusion CI Studios is committed to excelling at complex dynamic fx challenges. Realistic physical simulation is the core of their work – complex particle & fluid fx involving liquids, smoke, fire, explosions and rigid/soft body dynamics at uncompromising, photo-real, feature-film quality.
Fusion CI Studios typically work as a plug ‘n play fx team for other vfx houses when these need to expand their fx capacity for challenging custom fx work. Their clients find this working model invaluable since dynamic fx are still very complex to do well, especially within today’s compressed schedules & budgets. The years of expertise ensure Fusion CI Studios deliver outstanding dynamic effects both time & cost-effectively.
