Kim Libreri

Kim Libreri has worked with the Lucasfilm companies since 2004, first as a Visual Effects Supervisor for Industrial Light & Magic and technology evangelist for all of Lucasfilm.

He was appointed Chief Strategy Officer for Lucasfilm in 2012.  Kim’s career in digital technology and visual effects spans 20 years and he has credits on over 25 films including, Super 8, Poseidon, War of the Worlds, The Matrix Sequels, Mission: Impossible 1 & 2, Event Horizon and Goldeneye.  He led the development team for the award-winning What Dreams May Come as well as for the original Matrix, developing the now-legendary Bullet Time technology.

Kim started his motion picture career in the UK at London's Computer Film Company, where he was the Senior Software Engineer and was responsible for pioneering many of the computer graphics techniques we use today. He was a founding member of Kodak’s Cinesite London, which was Europe’s first digital film bureau and is considered to be the first of the modern UK digital visual effects companies.

At Manex Visual Effects, he led the technology development teams on The Matrix and What Dreams May Come, each of which won Academy Awards for best achievement in visual effects.  In 2002, Libreri founded ESC Entertainment, which was set up to produce the visual effects for the Matrix sequels.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences honored Libreri with a Technical Achievement Award for the development of a system for image-based rendering allowing choreographed camera movements through computer graphic reconstructed sets. Libreri was also honored with an Oscar Nomination for Best Visual Effects in a Motion Picture by The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for Poseidon.

Libreri has a degree in computer sciences from Manchester University.
