Rango -Matte Painting effort with ILM

The Ray Team,

Congratulations to ILM and the whole Rango crew for their Oscar nomination for Best Animated Feature. Fingers crossed! An impressive debut as this was ILM’s first venture into feature animation. While I was at Rodeo FX I had the pleasure of working for ILM as an art director and matte painter on three environments for Rango. Our small team included modeler Gabriel Beauvais and matte painters Frederic St-Arnaud, Ludovic Iochem, and Robin Tremblay. It was a great experience and in fact a privilege to have the opportunity to work with the ILM team. Bonne chance!
