Short Bio

A soft-spoken Mormon, Dr. Ed Catmull is a brilliant computer scientist who is often credited for his pioneer work in computer animation. He had a vision of making a computer-animated feature film as early as the 1970s, and that's why he started Lucasfilm's digital division with Alvy Ray Smith.
