Technical Directors function as an integral part of the departments they’re associated with, designing or optimizing processes and tools to best fit production needs.
What do you do in your role?
As a technical director, I write tools for the technical processes we use to create our films as well as problem solve issues artists encounter in their day-to-day work. At the studio level, my role extends beyond that of a technical director. I have been fortunate enough to follow my dreams and love to use my platform to inspire women and minorities to see computer science as a path into the computer animation or entertainment industry.
What does your department do?
We provide support for artists by finding more efficient ways for them to contribute their work. We are the connection between technology and art, and we empower the artists to create the work you see on the screen.
