In his two decade career, Fon Davis has worked on over 30 feature films. As a alumnus of the Industrial Light and Magic Model Shop, Fon has worked on features such as STAR WARS, PEARL HARBOR, STARSHIP TROOPERS, GALAXY QUEST, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE III and THE MATRIX series.
In addition to his work in visual effects, Fon has also worked in Disney’s art departments as a concept designer/model maker, and on several stop motion projects including THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS and CORALINE.
More recently, Fon was the Miniatures Supervisor on Neill Blomkamp’s, ELYSIUM. Having started Fonco Creative Services in 2000 and later merging with New Deal Studios, Fon also writes and develops his own projects, frequently using his CG skills alongside practical model making. With his vast experience, Fon is well-placed to discuss the art and craft of model making for cinema, from concept design to hybrid practical and cgi effects, with a particular expertise in knowing where models and miniatures can play a role in today’s digital world.
