A Bug's Lifebroke the box-office records for an animation and was
nominated for and won numerous industry and entertainment awards. I was

well over 10% of the total footage for the film. The work was an essenital
componant of the storytelling and cimematorgraphic success of the movie.
I created the Master Lighting for an entire sequence, and did shot by

Pixar's state of the art 3D software tools.
