Jan Philip Cramer is the head of animation for Digital Domain and a proud graduate of Academy of Art University. Cramer was the animation supervisor for Avenger: Infinity War and explained while recently speaking at the Academy that it was an honor to be trusted with such a monumental project.
Cramer graduated from the Academy of Art University in 2004 with a degree in Animation and Visual Effects and has since accumulated an impressive list of cinematic credits that include Independence Day, Avatar, Deadpool, X-Men, and more.
Cramer says that her present career in VFX is both the perfect fit for her and the fulfillment of a dream she has nurtured since her childhood. His hard work and dedication to his craft have garnered him much recognition and Cramer was honored by the Academy with an Alumni Award for Best Emerging Artist and in 2017, he received a membership in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences.
Cramer has always believed a great deal of the success he has enjoyed in the industry is a direct result of the great mentorships afforded to him while attending the Academy of Art University. He says that his study there provided him with a well-rounded understanding of art as a whole and not only visual effects.
