Spotlight: From the Imagination to the Big Screen: Interview with Warren Grubb

“Working with a team of talented and enthusiastic artists and animators is the most rewarding part of my job,” says Warren Grub, VFX Supervisor at Atlanta’s Fathom Studios where he is part of the ambitious Delgo project, the first independently produced computer animated feature film in the U.S. “I feel I can take a vision from the director, translate that to the team and, almost like magic, watch the rough shots come to life every day.”

Delgo is a fantasy adventure set in an imaginary land conceived entirely in the imagination, and realized entirely with CG animation. The star-studded voice cast, includes Jennifer Love Hewitt, Val Kilmer, Anne Bancroft, Chris Kattan, Eric Idle, Malcolm McDowell, Burt Reynolds, Lou Gossett, Jr. and others. Another exciting first in this production is that the public can follow the making of this film as it happens. At www.Delgo.com visitors can view the Digital Dailies from the project as they are completed.

We spoke with Warren about Delgo and how IRIDAS products help him and his team make the magic.
