Mike Gibson - VFX Producer

Mike Gibson has operated an independent VFX Producing company for over a decade, working on many notable VFX oriented television shows, pilots and feature films. He has been awarded 2 back to back Emmys for his work producing SyFy's Battlestar Galactica, and has been nominated 10 times by the academy. In addition, he has been recognized by the Visual Effects Society with 5 awards. Most recently, his work on the MOW Blood & Chrome for NBC saw the entire show shot on greenscreen creating a new paradigm in Digital Virtual Production. Gibson was at the forefront of establishing the In House VFX team for NBC/Universal on Battlestar Galactica, Caprica, Blood & Chrome and Defiance.

Currently, Mike has just finished posting Season 2 of the television series Defiance which is produced in partnership with the gaming company Trion Worlds. This is the first-ever convergence of a TV show and a Massive Multiplayer Online game where content of both media has been designed so that storylines cross-over. Mike is a graduate of Queen’s University with a BAH in Film Studies and is a member of the Visual Effects Society and the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
