Mini Bio (2)

Ryan Laney loves using technology to support storytelling in movies and special interest projects. He has worked with outstanding visual effects teams at Manex Entertainment, Industrial Light and Magic, Digital Domain, and Sony Pictures Imageworks. He is now exploring solutions in the crossover between Machine Learning and Visual Effects at Teus Media.

Digital veiling he developed and produced for the documentary Welcome To Chechnya earned the film a Visual Effects Society Nomination for Supporting Visual Effects and a spot on the Oscars' VFX Shortlist, the first documentary to do so.

His visual effects work has been an amalgam of leading and developing and is most often in the support of cross departmental tools and teams, and always helping to produce visual effects tailored to each film's unique needs. He has developed tools and supported teams for cloud and water effects in The Aviator, Goo in Spider-Man 3, house destruction and space and planet effects for Zathura, Energy systems for Green Lantern, robots in G-Force, and a custom cloud rendering engine for Hidalgo.

A recent focus on machine learning techniques in visual effects has led to working with human rights groups and efforts to make identity protecting tools available to television series and documentary filmmakers.
