What is the magic special effects are made of?
While we all wait for Pixar’s upcoming blockbuster, Soul, we talk to Francisco DeLaTorre, Technical Director and shading artist at the world’s greatest animation studio. In our zoom webinar, Francisco tells us how they recreate the real and the imagined world at Pixar, and shares the professional journey landing his dream-job at Pixar.
Francisco DeLaTorre went to school to design rockets but wasted too much time watching movies to be any good at that. In 2002 he joined the special effects industry. He has worked for Weta Digital, in New Zealand and Pixar in California. He is specialised in recreating reality but he loves all aspects of production. He worked in Up, Toy Story 4, Avatar, Hero amongst many others.
