Nathaniel Larouche

VFX Supervisor, Pixomondo

The son of steampunk magicians, Nathaniel Larouche is an Emmy & Visual Effects Society nominated VFX Supervisor at Pixomondo Toronto. Nathaniel was born and raised near Montreal where he enjoyed being the weird kid, filming everything in sight, and experimenting with editing and stop motion animation. Later on in life, he found himself in Toronto, where he studied animation and realized VFX was a medium that combined everything he enjoyed.

During the day, Nathaniel devotes his time on-set and in-house at Pixomondo Supervising the creation of real-time content. During the night, he experiments and collaborates with other creatives around the world. These collaborations result in unique content like Necronomicon, Baby Deer, and his fourth short film Soft Rain.

Most recently he completed three virtual production shoots on Pixomondos LED volumes including Star Trek Discovery, Strange New Worlds and Beacon 23.
