At NAB Show, our CTO/CD and Co-Founder Scott Squires was named one of the StudioDaily 50, a list of the top creatives and technologists in the media industry. The StudioDaily 50 is populated by executives and producers who make great work happen; directors, cinematographers and editors who push the creative envelope; and scientists, engineers, inventors and other innovators who keep pushing the state of the creative arts.
From all of us at Team Pixvana, congratulations, Scott!
Scott Squires is a longtime fixture in the VFX industry — he’s the co-founder of Dream Quest Images and a three-time Oscar nominee for visual effects. He won the Academy’s Scientific and Engineering Award for his work developing one of the first film scanners, during his tenure as CTO at ILM. Those decades of creative and technical VFX experience, along with his knowledge of Showscan and other specialty formats, has made him eager to tackle immersive video, a challenge he’s embracing as CTO at Pixvana. With hands-on experience in both shooting and stitching VR scenes, Squires is helping research and build Pixvana’s creation and delivery platform for virtual, augmented and mixed reality — the next generation of media.
