3D Generalist 
Groom Modeling Lighting Lookdev

Laurent Maynard has been working in visual effects since 2013. He graduated at ESMA Ecole Supérieure des Métiers Artistiques where he learned how to make a CGI Short Film from start to finish. 
He got his first job as Lighting Artist at MPC Moving Picture Company in London, where he got the opportunity to work on great movies such as Guardians of the Galaxy, Maleficient and The Martian. But he also worked as Groom Artist to make the fur and feathers on many animals for The Jungle Book. 
Then Laurent got hired to work for a great company ILM Industrial Light and Magic  in Vancouver Canada as Lighting Artist. He worked for Ninja Turtles, Ready Player One but also accomplished one of his dream to work on one of the Star Wars movies: The Last Jedi.
Laurent also worked for Digital Domain for many other movies.

After to have proof his skills as Lighting artist, Laurent really wanted to make some fur, hairs and feathers again. 
So he got the opportunity to work as Groom Artist at Double Negative where he feels important, with a lot of responsibilities, helping people to learn the grooming tools and pipeline, fixing some problems.
He worked for many movies there, but the biggest achievement is the Disney movie called Togo: The untold True Story where Laurent had to create some Realistic Huskies fur, manage other Groom Artists and make sure everything is fine....

Mainly for that reason, he actually got an internal DNeg Award for being one of the 5 Best Employee of the whole company in 2019
