What people say about Stu
“Stu and I worked together on the Alex Proyas sci-fi film “Knowing”. Through his role as character TD for the show, I worked with him specifically on the rigs for the aliens featured at the end of the film, which required a lot of specific controls to allow for physiological changes made by the director at every stage of production. Stu handled the challenges brilliantly under great stress – I would consider him to be a talented, calm, resourceful team member who I would happily work with again on any show.” – Will R., 3D Supervisor, Animal Logic
