Will Anielewicz is an artist. Others have at various times used engineer or developer or sequence supervisor to describe what he does, but the Polish-born Canadian is motivated by a purer force. For all the credits on his IMDb, his proudest achievement is undeniably having his work exhibited in SIGGRAPH’s first-ever exhibition of computer art back in 1981.
As a Pipeline Development Engineer / Artist, Anielewicz has been instrumental in developing the RenderMan, MentalRay and shader pipeline at Industrial Light & Magic, which is fitting given his role in launching the workstation that would become Maya.
