Super Super Films – Gavin Rothery
After graduating with a BA Honours degree in Illustration and Graphic Design from Leeds Metropolitan University, I worked as a commercial illustrator and Comic artist with comissioned work including Batman. A progression into the Computer Games industry saw me leading art teams on titles across all platforms and genres including Grand Theft Auto 3, which turned out to be the biggest selling computer game of all time.
Then followed a progression into Film and Broadcast Visual Effects work which led to VFX Supervision roles in broadcast commercials. Everything fused together when I was involved right through the creation of the 2008 feature film “Moon” where I designed the look of the film through concept art, CG Visualisation and Graphic Design, and also performed the role of Visual Effects Supervisor. This work has led to widespread critical acclaim and the film has won numerous awards including a BAFTA and more recently the 2010 Hugo. I am currently spending a lot of my time working in the advertising industry with Superglue as Visual Effects Director working with brands including Toyota, Reebok and Google and developing the science-fiction feature film “Archive”.
