The Iron Giant FX Animation

Pre-Production Designs

The Dome of Doom

One of the sequences I was responsible for creating the effects for, was the part where the giant generates an orb from his chest and lunches it over the ocean. My assistant (Matt Manners) and I nicknamed the sequence "The Dome of Doom". Click here to see movie (2mb).

The Lake Tidal Wave

The first sequence I was given to animate on The Iron Giant was "The Lake Tidal Wave". I was never very keen on animating water and looked at the task as a bit of a burden. Nevertheless, I saw it as a challenge and began working hard.
