Interview with Tyler Tometich (@vfx_monkey)
Thank you so much for joining us! Tell us about yourself?
Hello, thank you so much for having me. My name is Tyler Tometich. I own a production company that specializes in visual effects and animation in Los Angeles.
How did you come to where you are now? Tell us how you started this journey?
I think since a young age, I had a very imaginative mind. I would spend hours creating my own world in my head, so when I got to know about VFX, I just knew it is the right field for me. Now I can bring my imaginations into life.
Do you have any advice for your fans who want to be like you?
Oh, my advice would be to have patience. Patience is your best friend. Since this field requires so much attention and hours of sleepless nights, the only way you can make it through is with patience, my friend.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
It would be, “We all die. The goal isn’t to live forever, the goal is to create something that will.” I just want to make something so good that even if I am not alive, my work is talked about for many years after. I think this thought really motivates me to keep working hard.
Since you have been in this field for so long, is there any memory that is your favorite?
My favorite memory would always be when I worked on Ant-Man. It was such a dream come true. I learned so much from it.
