Leo Bovell




With over the past 17 years in the visual effects industry working on feature films, television and commercials, Leo Bovell has built a solid reputation as visual effects supervisor and a skilled all around 2d/3d artist.


Originally from New York, Leo started out creating graphics and motion designs for tv commercials, intro titles and print advertisements. His passion for the craft and also for film then lead him to San Francisco California where he was mentored by some of the greats while studying at the Academy of Art University.


Spending many years on the box working on commercials, television, feature films and video games, his skills in the CG department became exemplary. True to his nature of not settling for mediocre, in the last 9 years he has also increased his knowledge and skill set on the compositing & supervising side of production.


As a supervisor, Leo still spends a decent portion of his time on the box. He uses those essential skills for pre-planning, pitching and communicating the execution of shots (technical previz, blocking in camera fx, etc.). With these skills and an eagle eye you are guaranteed a flawless final product. Leo has had the pleasure to work in New York, San Francisco, L.A, Tokyo, Sendai Japan, Paris, Bretagne, London, Stuttgart Germany and now Canada where he currently resides.


During his down time he is either swimming, sculpting, playing with new gadgets, taking photos or learning new skills to add to his repertoire which is now matte painting.
