CARLSBAD, CA — Dr. Barry Sandrew, the founder, chief technical officer and chief creative officer of Legend3D (www.legend3d.com), has left the company to focus on entrepreneurial endeavors. Sandrew founded Legend3D in 2000, and the company has gone on to become a leader in the conversion of content from 2D to 3D. Legend3D leverages his extensive visual effects and digital imaging expertise, which includes 14 VFX patents and 23 years of feature film and TV experience.
“We’ve come a long way, from a single workstation in the corner of an empty room to become a dominant leader in 3D conversion and visual effects, and I see this as the perfect time for me to exit the company,” says Sandrew. “Legend3D’s anticipated success is a great legacy for me as founder, but perhaps the legacy I am most proud of are the thriving careers created during the process of building and growing the company. I am an entrepreneur who is most happy starting new businesses and creating disruptive technology. I appreciate all of Legend3D’s support as I look to future opportunities and I will continue cheering the company on to continued success.”
Legend3D recently partnered with Marvel Studios, Colombia Pictures, TriStar Pictures, Warner Bros., Paramount, Walt Disney Pictures, MGM and BBC Films on major film features, including Maleficent, Transformers: Age of Extinction and The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Sandrew continues to serve on several boards. He recently took on a lead role with the Tesla Foundation Group as chairman of the board of advisors. Additionally, apart from Legend3D, Sandrew will remain involved in various aspects of the 3D industry and will continue to be an active member of the International 3D & Advanced Imaging Society.
