VFX Supervisor

Todd Sheridan Perry works in the film industry as a freelance visual effects supervisor/artist as well as a screenwriter, editor and director. Perry is a classically trained artist, as well as both a traditional and digital animator. His diverse background in video games, film and television has led him to play key roles in projects ranging from Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, Chronicles of Riddck, and 2012 to more recently, Marvel’s Doctor Strange, Marvel’s Black Panther, and Netflix’s The Christmas Chronicles.  He recently was supervising on the aerial unit for Devotion, on-set for the second and third season of AppleTV+ For All Mankind for Sony Pictures. This past year he wrapped up the Amazon series I’m A Virgo with director Boots Riley, which was nominated for a VES Award for Best Practical FX.  And he assisted with VFX Supervision in post on season 4 on For All Mankind.

He has been animating since he was 8 years old; inspired after watching Star Wars, but his professional career began when he moved to Los Angeles in 1995. A couple years later, riding the wave as visual effects migrated from optical to digital, he started visual effects house Max Ink Cafe, working for over a decade to produce visual effects, full CG animation and films.

Perry has been awarded an Emmy for his work on the mini-series, The Triangle, while working with award-winning supervisors Volker Engel and Marc Weigert. He was also nominated for a Visual Effects Society Award for The Kite Runner while working with CafeFX. While at CafeFX, he also acted as Lighting Supervisor on Frank Darabont’s take on the Stephen King short-story, The Mist.

Perry writes for Animation Magazine, reviewing both software and hardware used in the visual effects industry, which keeps him apprised of the developing technologies that contribute to visual effects.

Todd is a member of both the Motion Picture and Television Academies, as well as the Visual Effects Society and has been a past board member for the Seattle branch.

Todd received his BFA at Pacific Lutheran University with an emphasis in 2-dimensional media, which included illustration, painting, photography and digital media. 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.

In between visual effects shows, he travels between Los Angeles and Seattle, focusing on screenwriting and developing his own film projects.
