SPECIAL EFFECTS COORDINATOR

This Prairie dawg is a 24 year veteran of the special effects world. Al grew up in the great-plains, moved to Vancouver as a young man and has been achieving great things since.

He studied Fine Arts in university and fell into special effects through his work in multi-media. A friend of his, John Thomas of the Thomas effect group encouraged him to take a leave of absence from his day job of teaching at the Emily Carr Art Institute to work on Tom Sellecks film Runaway. The rest has been history.
Over the years Al has done extensive work in the television and film business on many films and series including: Rumble in the Bronx, Look Who’s Talking Too, Stark Raving Mad and Bob the Butler to name a few. When it comes to special FX he’s your man.
