As an Animation Supervisor, Karl is responsible for delivering the directors’ creative vision for the performance of CG characters and creatures. He works closely with filmmakers and the VFX Supervisor to determine the aesthetic and technical approach to all animation and character performances. He also ensures the animation team has the technical and creative resources they need to produce high-quality animation, pre-vis, motion-edit, crowds, facial animation, and motion-capture.
Karl joined Weta Digital in 2006 to work in the newly-formed pre-vis team on Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson’s The Adventures of Tintin. Since then, Karl has worked on a number of key projects for Weta, which after a brief stint in London, included four Marvel films in a row. He was a Lead Animator on Avengers: Infinity War then an Animation Sequence Supervisor on Avengers: Endgame before becoming an Animation Supervisor—first for Black Widow, then for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
