ILM Employee Spotlight: Rebecca Kuo
What is your name, what do you do and how long have you been working at ILM Sydney?
My name is Rebecca Kuo, and I used to work in ILM Singapore as a Pipeline Technical Director for three years.
What is your biggest passion outside of work?
I love traveling, exploring new things and enjoying good food. I always try to arrange at least two trips in a year just to see different parts of the world. I’ve been to Universal Studios Singapore 4-5 times in six months and hope that one day I can visit all Disneylands and Universal Studios around the world.
What kickstarted your career in VFX?
I used to play different kinds of games since I was a kid, from Gameboy, NES, to online games on Windows XP. So, I kept looking for what I wanted to focus on, then computer graphics made me very interested. After graduating from university, I worked in a mobile game studio as a programmer. During that time, I’ve watched many Marvel movies, I observed all the pretty and realistic images but I knew it’s fake, that made me want to switch from the game industry to visual effects. Because I wanted to find out how visual effects movies were made.
What do you love about working in the industry?
I really enjoy the production work from green screen plates to the final movie. Each project has different requirements, working in a position like Pipeline Technical Director, I have to understand each step in our workflow. When I’m watching movies together with friends or family, I can explain to them how something has been made.
