Jackson Lukas explores a range of visualizations in the medium of CG Hair. His manifesto would argue that hair’s simulation and realization in traditional CGI is of tantamount intrigue, fortified by the fascinating, misunderstood economics surrounding its technical and budgetary challenges in the CG pipeline and undermined only by its beauty on the big screen. Jackson has worked for a number of studios in LA, including ETC, Framestore, Prologue and DreamWorks as well as studios specializing in emerging mediums in CGI, like insperience and dotdotdash.
