An established VFX supervisor in Canada and the UK, Christian Irles joined Image Engine in 2018 and has since contributed to Foundation season 2, The School for Good and Evil, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Mulan, and John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum.
Christian’s interest in visual effects began while studying computer science, architecture and film studies in his hometown of Mexico City. He initially moved to Montréal back in 2000 to study visual effects at the National Animation and Design Centre. He then spent the first five years of his career working as a generalist at Media Principia, Ubisoft and FX Cartel on a number of major releases including Stranger than Fiction and Across the Universe.
Moving to MPC London in 2006 as a senior compositor, Christian worked on Sunshine, Poseidon, and Elizabeth: The Golden Age. He later moved back to Canada with his family to join MPC for an additional two and a half years at the Montréal and Vancouver offices as VFX supervisor. During his time with them, he was at the helm of a number of major productions, including Pan, Tim Burton’s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, and Into The Woods.
In between, Christian became a compositing supervisor and VFX supervisor at our partner company, Cinesite, where he completed projects including The Golden Compass, Clash of the Titans, and John Carter. Prior to arriving at Image Engine, Christian contributed to the big screen adaptation of the best-selling game, Assassin’s Creed and the 2018 Disney production Mary Poppins, Returns as VFX supervisor at Cinesite.
