Tim Jones is a CG Supervisor specializing in environment modeling, lighting and compositing for a wide variety of projects ranging from game cinematics and ride films to television commercials and film. He received duel degrees in the fields of architecture and illustration from Lawrence Tech. After several years doing freelance and working for an architecture visualization firm he has made the switch to entertainment and is now working for Blur Studio. Tim's work can be seen in game cinematics and commercials such as Warhammer 40K, Hellgate: London, Ghost Recon 3, X-Men Legends 2 and Call of Duty: Finest Hour.
"Tim Jones has been at Blur for over 2 years now and in that short time he's become a studio leader and one of our "go-to" guys for lighting. He has both a technical understanding of how light works and a critical artistic eye; both skills are needed in Blur's work environment where an artist may be called upon to do photoreal shots one week and light-hearted cartoons the next. Tim is able to solve ANY lighting problem that we throw at him with ease, coming up with great looking solutions every time."
