Ivan Hayden entered the cutting edge field of Visual Effects in film and television 16 years ago when the sector was young in Canada. He’s been a part of visual effects for hit TV shows and big budget feature films starting at the bottom and working his way to the top. Ivan became Executive Producer of Encore Visual Effects, a Deluxe company, in April of 2012. Since he started, Encore Canada has grown from Vancouver to Toronto, successfully creating Visual Effects for the “People’s Choice” winning series “Beauty & the Beast” and the cult hit “Bates Motel”. The idea that: “with new technique and technology comes great opportunity for revolution in what’s possible”, has driven Ivan from the beginning.
