Visual Effects


Director: Alfonso Cuaron

CG Sequence Supervisor

I worked on Gravity from early in pre-production on the development of shoot methodologies and techvis. I supervised the techvis team that worked out how the camera moves could be shot, including the use of motion control robots and the Lightbox. I also worked closely with cinemetographer Emmanuel "Chivo" Lubezki, pre-lighting the film. During the shoot at Shepperton Studios, I worked closely with director Alfonso Cuaron, Chivo, VFX Supervisor Tim Webber and SFX and Art Departments. In post production I was a sequence lighting supervisor. I won a VES Award - Outstanding Created Environment in a Live Action Feature Motion Picture for the Gravity Exteriors. Our work on Gravity won an Oscar, a BAFTA and 6 VES Awards.
