Digital effects artist, and former TLC art student (and staff member), Sarah de Schot, has reached the pinnacle of what would be any special effect artist’s dream – winning an Oscar.
Sarah de Schot was part of a team at visual effects company Double Negative, which won an Oscar and a Bafta award for their work on the Christopher Nolan sci-fi movie, Interstellar, in 2014.
And, since then she hasn’t looked back. Her movie pedigree list is growing and includes working on:
Spectre, the latest James Bond film
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
Currently a senior digital paint artist at Industrial Light and Magic, it is Sarah’s job to make sure any special effects are seamless and completely invisible to the viewer.
In Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, she was tasked with painting out the actor who played robot K-2SO, and removing the foot of Forest Whitaker’s character, Saw Gerrera. Her team also did a lot of the paint work for the sequence set on the planet of Jedha.
