Todd Groves first delved into the world of visual effects by working with Alan Bell on Walt Disney Studio's “Miracle” (2004). More recently he worked as a compositor on “The Comebacks” - Fox Atomic, “Hoot” - Walden Media, “Little Manhattan” - New Regency Entertainment, as well as many others. Being an artist for most of his life, Todd came to love films as another means of artistic expression. Like many filmmakers it was seeing the science fiction film classic “Star Wars” that inspired Todd to learn about the making of films from behind the camera. Not content with simply going with what he knows now, Todd is always involved in some form of training and can often be found participating in communities for visual effects and CG challenges.
