Dr. Gergely Klar (’11 @ UCLA #Hungary) just joined Weta Digital as a Simulation Researcher!

He will be developing the tools artists use for creating the visual effects in blockbuster movies. Weta Digital is on top of the game in this business, and there is a high chance you have already witnessed their great work. The Lord of the Rings rings a bell?

Greg got screen credit for The Boss Baby while working at DreamWorks Animation, and we wish him many more with Weta Digital!
