The Tempest was an adaptation of Shakespeare’s play directed by Julie Taymor, widely known for directing the hit Broadway musical, The Lion King. Kyle Cooper’s company, Prologue Films, partnered with Taymor, creating all the VFX, and taking part in much of the filming that was done on Maui. I served as a VFX Producer, producing the visual effects — under Prologue’s Head of Production, Ian Dawson, and Kyle Cooper’s creative direction — for the better part of a year, managing a large team of Prologue designers, compositors, 2D and 3D animators. I also created the imagery for the movie poster: typography done by Lisa Bolan. After the film was released, I worked with Julie on all the images that went into the creation of a coffee table book about the making of The Tempest, published by Abrams in 2010.
