I manage the team of artists that process the captured facial footage and create the facial "masks" used during virtual cameras.
Most challenging part of your job?
Ensuring our small team is able to keep up with the high turnover volume of products.
What's surprising about your job?
Nothing escapes the face cameras during performances! We've seen everything from food stuck in teeth, to eyes welling up after a moving scene to even surprises hidden in people's noses.
Most exciting thing about working on the sequels?
Being surrounded by wonderful people making magic every day.
Most memorable thing about seeing Avatar in theaters?
Driving an hour to the one IMAX theater in the area in Kansas and being transported to a completely new universe to the world of Pandora — we definitely weren't in Kansas anymore.
