Luma Supervisors Speak at Global Student Conferences


Animation Supervisor Raphael A. Pimentel headed to the SANDS 2018 event held in Swansea, Wales to share his knowledge of what it takes to make it as an animator in the film industry. Raphael shared his story of starting out at Luma over 10 years ago and the major characters he’s animated over the years, like Thanos, Spider-Man and Korg (just to name a few).
