What is your proudest achievement while working at Imageworks?
Working my way up from Production Assistant fresh out of University to Digital Producer here at Imageworks. Oh, and working with a small independent artist named Britney Spears on her music video for THE SMURFS 2. No big deal!
What inspired you to become involved in making movies?
I remember seeing JURASSIC PARK for the first time in 1993 and thinking to myself 'I want to make dinosaurs come to life'. Once I was in University, it was clear to me that my passion was still in Digital Media and Animation, and that working in the film industry was a goal I was determined to achieve. Ironically enough, I even wrote my Senior University Thesis about the VFX technology and its usage in film, and even gave Imageworks a shout out before I even knew I would be working there! It was clearly destined to be.
