Visual Effects Art Direction
ILM: San Francisco
For Christian, it all started in kindergarten with a finger painting of Darth Vader. He spent his early years sketching spaceships, fantastical creatures and renderings of his favorite movie scenes. He then followed his childhood heroes Ralph McQuarrie and Syd Mead to Art Center where he graduated with distinction and landed a job as a production assistant in the Industrial Light & Magic art department.
Now a Senior Visual Effects Art Director, Christian has used his artistic skills and life-long enthusiasm to create stunning art and characters for various productions including: Star Trek Into Darkness, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, and bringing it full circle to his childhood – Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
