Glen McIntosh has been in the film and animation business for over 15 years. After attending the Classical Animation Program at Sheridan College, McIntosh decided to pursue his passion for art and film. He relocated from his childhood home in Calgary to work for Don Bluth Studios in Dublin, Ireland, and later to Twentieth Century Fox Studios in Phoenix, Arizona to pursue his dream of being an artist.
Driven by his desire to work on films created by his two favorite directors, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, McIntosh strove to perfect his skills as an animator and filmmaker. In 1998, he was hired by Industrial Light & Magic where he has had the opportunity to turn his dreams into reality, creating animation for George Lucas’ Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace and Steven Spielberg’s E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial. He also served as the Animation Supervisor on Colin Trevorrow’s blockbuster hit, Jurassic World. His additional credits include Jurassic Park III, Hulk, and numerous commercials including Pepsi’s “Playacting,” which received a Clio Award for Outstanding Character Animation.
