LOS ANGELES — VFX supervisor Lindy De Quattro has joined the roster at MPC Film (mpcfilm.com). Over the last two-and-a-half decades, which included 21 years at ILM, De Quattro has worked with some of the industry’s best known directors, including Guillermo Del Toro, Alexander Payne and Brad Bird. She currently serves on the Executive Committee for the VFX Branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
De Quattro’s VFX credits include Iron Man 2, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Downsizing and Pacific Rim, for which she won a VES Award for Outstanding Visual Effects. In addition to supervising visual effects teams, she also covered on-set supervision for major feature films.
"I was attracted to MPC because of their long history of exceptional high-quality visual effects, but I made the decision to come on board because of their global commitment to inclusion and diversity in the VFX industry” says De Quattro. “I want to be an active part of the change that I see beginning to happen all around me, and MPC is giving me the opportunity to do just that. They say, ‘If you can see it, you can be it,’ Girls need role models, and women and other underrepresented groups in the industry need mentors. In my new role at MPC I will strive to be both while contributing to MPC's legacy of outstanding visual effects."
The studio’s team of VFX supervisors includes Richard Stammers (Dumbo, The Martian, X-Men Days of Future Past), Erik Nash (Avengers Assemble, Titanic), Nick Davis (The Dark Knight, Edge of Tomorrow) and Adam Valdez (The Lion King, Maleficent, The Jungle Book). MPC Film is currently working on The Lion King, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Call of the Wild and Detective Pikachu.
