Our very own Michel Murdock, BCS’81, was recently named President of Hybride—Quebec’s first digital visual effects studio.
The company, celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, was co-founded by Michel and his three partners, Pierre Raymond, Daniel Leduc, and Sylvie Talbot, in 1991.
Specializing in state-of-the-art visual effects for the film and television industry, Hybride has worked on some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters, such as 300, Sin City, Avatar, Jurassic World, as well as the five most recent films in the Star Wars franchise. Most recently they have lent their skills to the popular series The Mandalorian on Disney+, for which they were awarded an Emmy for outstanding visual effects.
This McNaughton House alumnus credits a lot of his success to his time spent on Moulton Hill. “BCS greatly impacted my life,” he reminisces. “It exposed me to a diverse group of people, all with their own special skills and talents, and showed me there are so many different routes you can take in life. That experience has been extremely helpful to me in my career, which sees such a diverse blend of people—both creative and technical—come together to work on projects.”
