Featured Artist: Jerad S Marantz (updated)

Jerad S Marantz has been working in both the Film and Game industries for over ten years.  Marantz started his career at an early age interning for Special FX houses.  After graduating from Pasadena Art Center College of Design he started designing for Stan Winston Studio. He has also freelanced for several special FX houses including: Tinsley Transfers, Stan Winston's, Amalgamated Dynamics Inc., Quantum Creation FX, Creature FX Inc, and Almost Human. Currently he is the lead designer at the Aaron Sims Company. In late 2005 Jerad worked full-time at NCsoft Santa Monica where he designed for such games as, Richard Garriot's Tabula Rasa, Guild Wars and Lineage Forever. He has also freelanced for Midway (Surreal Games), THQ, Sony (Sucker Punch), and Climax. Trying a little of everything early on enabled him to narrow his focus to character / creature design for the Film and Game industries. His acquired skills in sculpture, painting, illustration, Zbrush, and Photoshop all aid his unique sense of concept design. Jerad also enjoys teaching at Gnomon School of Visual FX, and the Concept Design Academy.  Email: jsmarantz@hotmail.com  Film Credits include: Green Lantern, Sucker Punch, Clash of the Titans, Spiderman(2012), Transformers 3, The Burrowers, Apparition, Jonah Hex, The Deaths of Ian Stone, Race to Witch Mountain, Wolverine Origins, XMEN First Class, Twilight- Breaking Dawn, Dragon Ball Evolution, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, and I am Legend.
