CGSociety Artist Profile: Phil Tippett

Some people can walk unnoticed through a crowd yet leave a mark that alters almost everything we know. Phil Tippett is one of those wandering wizards. With his work on the hologram chess pieces in Star Wars to his recent work in ‘Enchanted’, ‘The Golden Compass’, and ‘The Spiderwick Chronicles’, Tippett characters have been walking in our imaginations for years. Yet, if you saw Tippett in a crowd, you might barely notice the slightly rumpled man with intense eyes framed from years of smiling and concentration. He still seems to feel his impact has just been nothing more than luck and endurance. CGSociety sat him down for a yarn while at ADAPT in Montreal after a grueling year on 'Spiderwick'.
