In 1984, Phil Tippett founded Tippett Studio, a company mostly dedicated in stop motion animations working on numerous feature films such as Willow or Robocop. After Jurassic Park, his studio came into the digital age. Nobody has forgotten the swarms of deadly arachnids for the cult movie directed by Paul Verhoeven, Starship Troopers.  Today, Phil Tippett mixes with talent and invention, the ancestral techniques in stop motion, modeling or special effects with the most innovative digital visual effects to create thrilling imagery for screens of all sizes. He also develops his own projects as director and he’s currently working on the 3rd and 4th chapters of Mad God, a feature-film in stop motion.

 

He’s recently inducted into the VES Hall of Fame, a select group of pioneers who have played a significant role in advancing the field of visual effects.
