Colombian TRON Link

In 1982, I was 12 years old (should I really admit that?!?). I went to see TRON at the Villa theater with a group of friends. My father took us, though he was not too impressed with the show. I remember thinking that it was pretty cool, though I can't remember anything about it now.

This past weekend my husband took my oldest boy to see the movie. They liked it and decided it was defintiely not MOM material.

There is, however, a little material for the blog that is related to this movie. Here goes:

Colombian Juan Sebastián Gómez, from Medellin, used to dream about making movies. Now, he has made his dream a reality. Gomez works for Digital Domain, the company that was in charge of making many of the visual effects for the TRON LEGACY movie.

The thirty year old Paisa coordinated a group of 20 people as lead look development artist, working on the cars, backgrounds, and characters seen in the movie. During the post production phase, he worked as the lead lighter.

You can read the whole article about him in El Tiempo, here:
