Yusei Uesugi


“I started to work for ILM in 1989, as a traditional Matte Painter, on Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade. I’ve been doing this for almost 20 years, and some of my work can be seen in Die Hard 2, Ghostbusters 2, Jurassic Park, Forrest Gump, Star Wars episodes I, II and III, The Day After Tomorrow, Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban, and many others. I also won an Emmy for my work on The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, back in 1990.”
