My role is like a generalist. We do animation, previs, cameras, FX, or pretty much anything needed to have a 3D scene ready for stage to capture cameras with. The most challenging part of my job is not being able to work on every single scene! There's so many interesting elements that I want to be a part of it all. I love to see how it all comes together. It constantly surprises me how advanced the technology we use is and what we can do with it. The most exciting part about working on the sequels is seeing all the behind the scenes work that creates such an amazing outcome; being there from the motion capture portion and experiencing it live, then going to the computer and blending it with 3D is an amazing process to be a part of.
