In Featured Instructors

IanPIan Parra Joins Think Tank!

The new VFX course instructor will be none other than, Mr Ian Parra.

Ian was born and raised in Mexico, and has always drawn to the creative arts. After finishing high school he obtained a Graphics Design degree and then soon discovered the world of  compositing. This became his calling, striking the perfect balance between visual fx and animation, and bringing him to Vancouver in 2007 to enroll in the 3D Modelling & Animation course at VFS. Upon finishing, he was hired on at Ollin Studios in Mexico City and worked there for the next three years. However, his love for Vancouver just couldn’t keep him away! In 2012 he moved back and has been working steadily ever since (Anthem, MPC, Method and Scanline VFX). Currently he’s at ILM but prior to getting into film he did concept art, illustration, animation and graphic design.

Mr Parra’s resume boasts a number of projects including: Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. He doesn’t know if he can point to one particular project that stands out the most, as each one has taught him something new. However, he did very much enjoy working on Avengers: Age of Ultron. He’s also very excited about the current project he’s on at ILM…but that’s all he can say about it for now!

In his spare time, Ian loves to paint and do character design, concept art, matte painting and illustration. He also enjoys travelling as he finds immersing himself in new places sparks  inspiration for new ideas and projects.
