Based on William Joyce's A Day With Wilbur Robinson, Meet the Robinsons was Walt Disney Animation Studios' second CG animated feature (arguably the third depending on how you classify Dinosaur).
My first full lead role, I supervised a Lighting team and assisted in the visual development of the 'Future City at Night' and 'Future Dystopia' sequences. This was also my first opportunity to flex both my artistic and technical muscles equally. It was an incredibly satisfying experience, and I learned a great deal from Art Director Robh Ruppel and Co-Art Director David Goetz.
I created a bake workflow that saved the show over one million rendering hours. Along with writing shaders and scripts, I directed the creation of lighting tools and pipeline workflows.
