In 2015, Andrew collaborated with George Miller to help create the atmospheric and fully immersive world of ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’, for which he won the Australian Film Institute Award for Best Visual Effects and received both a BAFTA and an Academy Award nomination.
Andrew’s first role as VFX Supervisor was on the 2009 sci-fi drama, ‘Knowing’, for which he received a VES Award nomination in the prestigious Best Single Visual Effect of the Year category. Following this, Andrew took on the role of live-action VFX Supervisor on ‘Happy Feet Two’ and, through his work on this movie, established his working relationship with the director, producer and screenwriter George Miller.
