Frederick Gaudreau

After graduating from Montreal's ICARI school in 1999, Frederick started as a modeler/generalist on game animatics. His attention to detail, skills and eagerness quickly brought him to work on big productions. His professional path led him to work on sets as a motion control TD, experiencing and discovering live lighting, a medium holding the power to transform a boring environment into a true work of art. Over the years, his career evolved into lighting and compositing, his true passion. He moved to California in 2004, where his good reputation preceded him. He had the pleasure to light and comp on animation films such as Monster House and Open season. Frederick then had the opportunity to work on award wining live features such as Spider Man 3, I am Legend, Val Kyrie, Body of Lies, Watchmen and more. He currently holds a position as a VFX supervisor at Warner Bros Animation.
