Industrial Light & Magic



R&D  Engineering Intern


Time of Work

Summer 2012


Industrial Light & Magic is the American visual effects company founded by George Lucas. ILM is currently the largest visual effects vendor in the motion picture industry and has received 15 Best Visual Effects Oscars and 23 additional nominations. It has also received 24 Scientific and Technical Awards from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.



On a day to day basis, I was mainly responsible for facilitating stable creation of builds touched by over 15 engineers in R&D as well as writing python tools and scripts for ILM's continuous build system. My goal during the internship was to make everybody's lives easier by automating tasks that previously needed to be tediously done manually by every engineer.
