Michael Jackson joined the HALON crew with 20 years of experience in the visual effects fields for companies like ILM, EA-LA, Dream Quest Images,Sony Imageworks and Walt Disney Imagineering. With extensive VFX skills in tracking, animation, lighting and compositing, high quality and technically accurate postvisualization comes very naturally to Jackson. While at Disney, Michael did technical previs for rides like Nemo Submarine Voyage, updates to Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Tours: The Adventure Continues and Carsland: Radiator Springs Racers. Starting at HALON back in 2008 as a previs artist on Gulliver’s Travels, Michael came back in 2010 to lead postvis for Gulliver’s Travels. Michael’s recent projects for HALON include: postvis supervisor for Cowboys & Aliens, postvis artist on Peter Berg’s Battleship, postvis supervisor for a Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, Marc Forster’s World War Z and more recently Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland. He supported the postvis team for a highly anticipated film due out in December 2015 and is now on a project with Walt Disney Pictures due out in spring of 2016.
