Patrick Tubach joined Industrial Light & Magic in 1999 as a Compositor. During his time at the company he has taken on roles of increasing scope and responsibility and now serves as Visual Effects Supervisor for ILM.
Tubach graduated summa cum laude from Baker University in Baldwin City, KS, with a BA in Communications, and although much of his schooling centered on creative writing and journalism, his lifelong interest in film led him to Los Angeles, where he began his visual effects career at Kodak's Cinesite. As digital effects grew more sophisticated, Patrick soon made the transition from roto and paint artist to compositing. In that marriage of photography and CG, he found a genuine affinity and passion for the artistry of digital effects. In addition to working as visual effects supervisor on “Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens,” Patrick was a co-visual effects supervisor on “Transformers: Age of Extinction” and “Star Trek Into Darkness,” and digital production supervisor on “WALL-E” and “Mission: Impossible III.”
