My first film with Disney was as a Muppeteer in 1992 on The Muppet Christmas Carol. But from a VFX standpoint, Disney’s John Carpenter Of Mars. Whilst not my first film as a VFX artist, this was my first mission with a Laser Scanner. Working with DNEG, I set about to readdress the Lidar workflow and pipeline for VFX, with a view to increasing the quality, whilst expediting delivery.
Having left Soho, my relationship with Disney has continued to grow, through a surprise return to the Muppets (again), Into The Woods, Alice 2, Beauty and the Beast & Nutcracker and the four realms.
As Im sure you can imagine, the set builds on a Disney show are nothing short of spectacular. And we continue to strive for perfection in our scanning to preserve the awesome quality of the set designers vision, into a digital realm, ready for post production.
