What is your proudest achievement while working at Imageworks?
Presenting our fantastic work to clients like Sam Raimi and Marc Webb. Growing from artist to supervisor between ALICE IN WONDERLAND and ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS. Supervising my team as they finished 107 shots in one week on GREEN LANTERN.
What inspired you to become involved in making movies?
My parents exposed me to such an amazing and diverse range of movies when I was growing up, and I've always been fascinated by every aspect of the process. DELICATESSEN and THE ADVENTURES OF BARON MUNCHAUSEN convinced me of the power of innovative visuals in film.
