I am Director Andrew J. Mitchell, this is my website. My passion is to bring things to life on screen that could not exist in reality. Looking to create a long term relationship with an established feature film visual effects company that will continue to foster the growth of a young visual effects driven director.
Recently I have been fortunate enough to study under one of the VFX programming greats, Malcolm Kesson. Developing production tools in MEL, Python and Renderman. My documentation for those projects can be found here.
Born to a family of Hot-Air Balloonists, developed highly skilled aquatic abilities and an immense passion for visual story telling. DrewNews.com began in 1996 in a Central Illinois basement as an outlet to showcase my work. This is where I still and will always showcase my work. Check out my work here and other works on my IMDB profile.
