Nancy St John Portrait

Nancy will be give a comprehensive presentation about her career, including her experiences working on dozens of critically acclaimed projects, and the changes in her work and the industry at large, viewed across her experiences as a woman in visual effects over the last 30 years.

Nancy is a master visual effects specialist, who will present a unique perspective from the
side of digital arts, a niche aspects of the storytelling process I’m sure many of our friends in the producing program will enjoy.  Ever wondered how a team of hundreds of effects artists communicate and organize their efforts on a picture with tens of thousands of frames?  Come find out!

Some of her biggest hits include:

  • Total Recall
  • Gladiator
  • Resident Evil
  • I, Robot
  • Babe
  • The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou
  • Men in Black 3

I’m especially excited to hear about her work on the brand new
Ender’s Game
, which just came out.  It’s certainly a beautiful film, and rivals
for bleeding-edge special effects production quality.
