Having contributed to the dazzling special effects of Guardians of the Galaxy, Iron Man 3 and The Dark Knight, Stuart Penn is no stranger to big screen comic-book extravaganzas. That being said, he’s dipped his toes into plenty of other genres over the years, including sleek sci-fis (Alien: Covenant), epic fantasies (King Arthur: The Legend of the Sword) and even lovable family flicks (Paddington 2).
His borad expertise and vast technical knowledge make him one of the most sought after minds in his field. An asset to any project he gets involved in, he has rightly gained a lot of attention for his award-winning work on Gravity, where he drew upon his background as a physicist in order to pioneer groundbreaking motion control technology. Did we mention he also has a PhD? Because, yeah, he has a PhD.
