What do you do in your role?

I write software tools to improve the workflow of artists and other developers, working closely with users to better understand their needs and how best to support them.

What does your department do?

The Production Technology department writes software that the artists use to make our movies. Each movie has specific requirements that come from the artists' envisioned art direction. Frozen needed realistic snow effects, Moana needed to simulate water characters and vast oceans. These tools don't necessarily exist when the directors pitch the show or develop a visual direction. Our department works with the artists to create tools that help them achieve their vision.
