With over 500 article reviews on both software and hardware used in the visual effects industry, Perry has been able to keep abreast of the developing technologies that contribute to visual effects.
Todd received his BFA at Pacific Lutheran University with an emphasis in 2-dimensional media, which included illustration, painting, photography and digital media. His animation and visual effects training came from internships in Seattle with Terry Tennyson for character animation and Charlie Canfield at Alpha Cine for optical effects. He resides in Seattle, Washington, focusing on writing and developing film projects, and frequently working on commercial work for local award-winning content houses, Workhouse Creative and World Famous, as well as Bungie and Microsoft.
