On a recent flight from L.A. to Oakland, I ran into an old advertising friend from Zoic Studios, a visual effects company. He introduced me to his colleague – a man named Les Ekker.
I had the chance to ask Les about his career and how he ended up at Zoic as we carpooled into San Francisco together.
Les had been working at Digital Domain for nearly 14 years and was a renowned VFX Supervisor. However, he wanted to use other talents and skills that were more expansive than his job title and role could provide. So, he parted ways with Digital Domain — without anything concrete in the wings, and as the sole breadwinner of his household — to fulfill his passion.
