Chad Peter, DGA
Director (DGA) and VFX Supervisor / Artist originally from Colorado. Moved to L.A. in 2003 and bounced around the 20th Century Fox lot for two years, working in various departments prior to leaving to produce & direct an independent feature film in 2007. Self-taught VFX compositing out of budget necessity (literally out of a garage in The Valley - a rite of passage), which ultimately led to working as an in-house (editorial) VFX artist on seasons 2 thru 4 of Netflix's "House of Cards". Worked several other jobs during that time, beginning with "Birdman" (image stabilzation artist), "Gone Girl" (in-house compositor), and "The Revenant" (image stabilization artist - uncredited). Additional credits as in-house VFX compositor: "Mindhunter" season 1 (and some of 2), "Videosyncrasy" (Dir. David Fincher - cancelled by HBO after four episodes before air), "Rememory" (indie feature), and "Mr. Robot" season 3. Made the transition to VFX Supervisor for Amazon's "Homecoming" season 1 after building a working relationship with director Sam Esmail (from Mr. Robot). Continued on as VFX Supervisor and Additional Director (DGA) for Esmail's follow-up production - season 4 of "Mr. Robot".
