I build and prepare virtual scenes, work on stage to provide live animation support, and train new artists to ensure that everyone gets to help build part of a sequence.
What's challenging about your job?
You have to learn to forget how to do everything you know and then relearn it all again to unleash the true power of the technology we're using.
What's surprising about your job?
We don't work from storyboards! Jim's the only person who knows how the final shot is going to look, so we have to make sure our scenes look good from every possible angle.
Fun fact about yourself?
I am extremely obsessed and fascinated with snails. I even have a bumper sticker on my car that says, "I BRAKE FOR SNAILS."
