Personal Quote:

When any young director gets hired by a studio to do a $125 million film based on a preexisting piece of intellectual property, they're climbing into the meat grinder. And what you're coming out with on the other side is a generic, heavily studio-controlled pile of garbage that ends up on the side of Burger King wrappers. See more »

Graduated from Vancouver Film School's 3D Animation and Visual Effects program in 1998. See more »
