What is your proudest achievement while working at Imageworks?
Working with a talented team of developers and artists to reimagine the Imageworks stereo workflow on STORKS to help reduce overtime needs and provide a smoother pipeline.
What inspired you to become involved in making movies?
I grew up watching action, sci-fi, and karate movies with my father. His love for movies became a shared way for us to connect. Discussing plot breakdowns and visuals inspired me to want to be a part of visual storytelling. As for CG animated films, cheesy as it may sound, the first time I watched a breakdown for the movie Shrek. The characters walking through digital grass over the hill to the swampy abode changed my mind completely about what digital art is capable of.
