Glen McIntosh

Glen McIntosh has been in the film and animation business for a little over fifteen years. After attending the Classical Animation Program at Sheridan College, McIntosh decided to pursue his passion for art and film. He moved from his childhood home in Calgary, Canada, to work for Don Bluth Studios in Dublin, Ireland and Twentieth Century Fox Studios in Phoenix, Arizona.

Driven by his desire to eventually work on films created by his two favorite directors, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, McIntosh strove to perfect his skills as an animator and filmmaker. In 1998, he was hired by Industrial Light & Magic. At ILM, McIntosh has had the opportunity to turn his dreams into reality, creating animation for George Lucas’ Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace and Steven Spielberg’s E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial. His additional credits include Jurassic Park III, The Hulk and numerous commercials including Pepsi’s “Playacting” which received a Clio Award for Outstanding Character Animation.

As lead animator, McIntosh ensures the continuity of character performances from shot to shot by reviewing the sequences with the animation director. His latest work can be seen in Peter Berg’s feature film adaptation of the classic board game, Battleship.
