Hi there! My name is Emily Wimer.
I am a Lighting Artist currently living in Los Angeles, CA. Although I find enjoyment in all fields of Visual Effects, I am most passionate about Lighting and Look Development.
Originally, I am from a small town in eastern Connecticut. At a very young age, I fell in love with movies and have made it my goal to work for a studio that shares my same ambition of creating timeless stories.
I attended the Savannah College of Art and Design from 2014 to 2018 to pursue my dream. There I studied Visual Effects with a minor in Technical Direction. Post graduation, I moved to Montreal to start my career as a Lighting Artist at MPC. After working on my first show (Aquaman), I moved to Los Angeles and began working at DreamWorks Animation.
When I'm not creating, I love to spend my free time making music, and have been playing instruments my whole life. I also find most of my creative inspiration from nature, and enjoy spending time outdoors hiking, biking, and exploring. I am also a proud mother to two adorable cats, Laurel and Olive.
