Sherry Hitch

Artist Guest of Honor

Visual Effects Compositor

Sherry Hitch;

Sherry Hitch started out with an interest in visual effects while majoring in Telecommunications at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana working with Cubicomp graphic computers in 1988. A college internship in 1992 with CBS' "The Young and The Restless" lead her to discover the Henry Bay on the studio lot, where an even larger interest in visual effects soon developed.

Within a year of arriving in LA, Sherry soon found herself working as a 3D artist with Jon Voight on a small independent film creating visual effects called "Reverse Heaven". Unfortunately, the film never made it to the big screen, but it opened up an opportunity and connections to join a small number of innovative computer desktop visual effects artists just starting up a new company named Foundation Imaging.

Instrumental in the visually groundbreaking effects in “Babylon 5” in 1993 as the first television series to utilize feature quality effects, she was one of a few effects artists who received a Sci-Fi Universe Award for the series.

After working in 3D animation, she turned her sights to compositing, where she soon became a Supervising Visual Effects Compositor.

As a compositor in LA, Sherry also worked on other television projects such as Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Deep Space 9, Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek: Enterprise, Dawson’s Creek and began working on feature films such as The Jackal and Men in Black. Eventually Sherry had the privilege to work on a restoration of Robert Wise’s Star Trek: The Motion Picture for a Special Edition DVD. Working closely with Mr. Wise, Sherry helped the renowned filmmaker update the film while holding true to the filmmaker’s vision.

During her time at Foundation from 1993 to 2002, Sherry was nominated for three Academy of Television Science Emmy Awards™, while contributing to a winning fourth Award. After attending the 2002 Emmy Awards in LA, she decided to further pursue her dreams by getting a job working for the man who heavily influenced her with a movie named Star Wars; Mr. George Lucas.

Sherry joined Mr. Lucas’ company, Industrial Light & Magic in Northern California in late 2002 as a visual effects compositor, where her first film was Pirates of the Caribbean. Thinking that this was a temporary project for six months, ILM proceeded to keep her on board, where she eventually became staff. Her work on big effects films at ILM has included Van Helsing, War of the Worlds, the last chapter in the Star Wars Saga, Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, and Pirates of the Caribbean 2: the Curse of the Black Pearl. Continuing the blockbuster film trend, Sherry is currently busy working on this summer’s release from Universal Pictures starring Steve Carrell, Evan Almighty.

Sherry resides in the San Francisco Bay area, where, when she’s not creating magic on screen, she participates in outdoor activities such as softball, hiking, and golf, as well as gourmet cooking and watching the Indianapolis Colts during football season. She is also an active member of Television Academy of Arts and Sciences, the Visual Effects Society, and Women in Film.
