Atsushi Seo - Sledgehammer Games
Atsushi has worked in the VFX and games industry for 16 years. He started out studying Computer Arts at San Francisco's Academy of Art University. After graduating, he began his career as an assistant TD by ESC Entertainment and participated in movies such as "The Matrix Revolutions" and “Cat Woman”. Following his VFX work he transitioned to games, working on numerous titles such as the "Dead Space” trilogy at EA. For the past 6 years he has worked at Sledgehammer Games on titles such as “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare” and his most recent work, “Call of Duty: WW2”. The focus of Atsushi’s career has been on the art of lighting which, whilst having become a common role within AAA studios in recent years, he feels is still an often overlooked and underappreciated element of game development.
