LOS ANGELES — VFX supervisor Tim Davies, senior executive producer Sue Troyan and owner/partner Darcy Parsons have joined forces to launch ‘Kevin,’ a new VFX studio. Kevin (yourstrulykevin.com) is currently located on Abbot Kinney in Venice, though construction is underway on a new purpose-built facility in Culver City, which is scheduled to open early next year.
“I am so excited to be working with Tim and Sue, they are a powerhouse creative/producer duo,” says Darcy Parsons. “Kevin is a privately-owned company where the three partners will personally nurture the collective relationships they have built with agencies, directors and up-and-coming talent, as well as cultivate business opportunities with new clients.

So, "Why Kevin?"
“Well, Kevin is always there for you,” says Davies. “He’s your best mate, and will always have your back. He’s the kind of guy you want to have a beer with whenever he’s in town. Kevin knows his stuff and works his ass off to make sure you get what you need and then some!”
“Kevin is a state of mind,” adds Troyan.
As executive creative director, Davies will oversee the collective creative output of the company. He has successfully led talented teams of artists for over 25 years and is well known for his extensive knowledge of complex visual effects methodologies. Formerly at Asylum Visual Effects and The Mill as creative director and head of 2D, he has worked with some of the most highly-acclaimed directors and agencies in the business.
As senior executive producer, Troyan has been instrumental in the success of companies such as The Mill and Method. She brings in-depth knowledge and proven ability to source and nurture talent.
Parsons brings many years of experience in both production and visual effects. Her career has spanned many different disciplines, including line producer, VFX producer, executive producer and owner of her own VFX facility.
