Chris Edwards has been promoting the evolution and use of visualization in film, TV and immersive media. Following early work as a layout artist and character animator at Walt Disney Feature Animation, he joined a team at Lucasfilm that would previsualize Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. The experience would lead him to spearhead the founding of a dedicated previsualization studio in Los Angeles, named The Third Floor. The artist-led company has since become a global household name for visualization with a range of top credits few facilities can claim: from HBO’s Game of Thrones, to Lucasfilm’s Star Wars movies, to motion pictures in Marvel’s Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America, Captain Marvel, Ant-Man and Thor franchises.
