Animation Director

Our animators are always pushing the boundaries of imagination to create unforgettable on-screen performances.


Our art department’s goal is to help filmmakers visualize some of the most unique creatures cinema has ever seen. Through concept art, extensive research in behaviour and anatomy, and deep collaboration, Luma’s artists have created remarkable and fantastical creatures for many of Hollywood’s biggest films including, the White Spikes in The Tomorrow War, Medusa in Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief, Gargantos in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and Molten Man in Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Luma continually pushes the boundaries to deliver extraordinary FX—we've created everything from magical particle systems to extensive destructions and photoreal weather simulations. Our dev team work alongside artists to build custom tools and technology that help achieve complex and imaginative sequences.

Luma’s world-building spans the spectrum of imagination. Whether it’s assembling fantastical and completely digital worlds like the Dark Dimension in Doctor Strange, developing bioluminescent underwater kingdoms in Aquaman, or creating period reconstructions through matte paintings and set extensions for award-winning films like Elvis, Jojo Rabbit and True Grit, our team collaborates with filmmakers at every stage of the process to bring their vision to life.

Invisible Effects

Luma’s invisible visual effects work has helped filmmakers enhance their storytelling and overcome the practical challenges of capturing impossible shots in-camera. From period reconstructions in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood to set extensions for Jojo Rabbit and A Serious Man to recreating the iconic Graceland in Elvis to face replacements in the Marvel universe, our team sweat the details and ensure the work that’s not supposed to be noticed is truly invisible.
