Portrait of Matt Wallin by the artist Albert Epshteyn, 2010

As a filmmaker and visual effects artist, I have made films, written screenplays and created visual effects for feature films, games and broadcast for more than twenty years.

From 1992-1999, I worked as a digital compositor at Industrial Light & Magic, where I helped create 2D and 3D effects for movies such as “Twister”, “The Mummy”, “Star Wars: The Special Edition(s)” and “101 Dalmatians”. A full list of my credits can be found on IMDb.

Over the course of my career, I have also worked for Warner BrothersTippett StudioWeta Digital and MPC on numerous feature films including “King Kong”, “Matrix: Revolutions”, “Hellboy”, “Constantine” and “The Watchmen”.

I served as Visual Effects Supervisor for the American artist, Matthew Barneyʼs “Cremaster Cycle”, “De Lama Lamina” and “Drawing Restraint 9”. From 1999 - 2008 I directed and shot the feature documentary film "I Die Daily" on the making of the Cremaster Cycle.

I am an active member of the Visual Effects Society (VES) and a guest host on “The VFX Show” podcast, available for free on iTunes. I also serve as a member of ACM-Siggraph, the Association for Computing Machinery's Special Interest Group on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques. I am the co-creator of the VCU 3D Color Modeling Software which you can read more about here: http://mappingcolor.com/
