3P Studio appoints VFX supervisor Caleb De Leon as its new creative director

Visual effects supervisor, flame artist and senior colourist Caleb De Leon has joined 3P Studio as creative director at its new residence in Milton.


Most recently at Chop Shop, he brings with him his experience building and leading its visual effects team to success on international television shows and feature films for Paramount+, Netflix and Amazon Studios.

An awarded visual effects supervisor, his career in post-production goes back over a decade, with a body of work spanning commercials, music videos, television and feature films. No stranger to advertising, De Leon has worked across the Asia Pacific for clients that include Nike, Toyota, L’Oréal, Google and Nintendo.

With his own unique brand of disruptive creative energy and ambition, De Leon sees joining 3P Studio as an opportunity to close the gap between imagination and execution on projects.

Says De Leon: “Whenever I have worked in the past with Haley and the team at 3P Studio I have always walked away with a tremendous respect and admiration for everything that they’ve cultivated there. I think it’s rare to find a group of creatives that have such fierce loyalty, as well as creative potential and humility for the work that they produce. There are some extremely talented artists at 3P that I am looking forward to working with and giving more space for their work to be seen. I really want to shake things up in 2024 and raise the bar for post-production as a whole.”

Says Haley McDonald, CEO and founder of 3P: “From the very first project we worked on with Caleb we knew he was a special talent that would be an invaluable addition for our studio. We are so excited to have him leading our high energy creative team and his reputation speaks for itself. We are very much looking forward to working with him as we enter a new chapter at 3P.”

The strategic move comes off the back of 3P Studio’s growth internationally with its launch into New Zealand in early 2024.
