Patrick O'Brien


I am a technical artist with a M.S. in Visualization Sciences from Texas A&M University. I am currently a lead lighter at Dreamworks Animation specializing in lighting, compositing, and look development. 

My primary responsibilities are establishing the appearance of a sequence and key shots. Additionally, I create lighting rigs for the movie and sequence, supervise lighting artists, and help solve rendering and artistic problems in the movie.  I am heavily involved in studio initiatives that help standardize lighting practices. I also serve as an advisory member for Dreamworks Animation's lighting tool development.
