To capture the incredible details required for the environments in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”, the FX and asset teams at Animal Logic built a fractal-generation pipeline that allowed them to quickly visualize, extract, and post-process fractals, along with an efficient delivery and render strategy.
Miles first joined Animal Logic in 2004 and currently supervises and leads the FX Department in developing effects such as fire, smoke, explosions, water, fractals and more for a variety of animated features and complex VFX film projects. Prior to joining Animal Logic, Miles worked at a number of companies based in London. Early in his career, he also taught 3D to students at the well established National Centre for Computer Animation at Bournemouth University in the UK.
His recent credits include The LEGO Ninjago Movie, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2, The LEGO Batman Movie. Previous credits include Legend of The Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole and the Academy Awardâ winning Happy Feet.
Miles holds a degree with 1st Class Honours in Computer Visualisation and Animation and a Masters in 3D Computer Animation from the National Centre for Computer Animation at Bournemouth University in the UK.
