John Gaeta

Academy Award-Winning Visual Effects Designer for 'The Matrix'; Creative Director of New Media and Experiences, Lucasfilm

John Gaeta Biography

John Gaeta is an Academy Award-winning visual effects designer best known for his work on The Matrix film trilogy where he advanced the effects methods known as "Bullet Time", "Virtual Cinematography", and "Photo Anime".

Since working with the Wachowski siblings on The Matrix movies and Speed Racer, he has been experimenting with motion sensing technology (Kinect) as a way of converging movies and interactive media into a more compelling, mind-bending and unifying experience.

It's Gaeta's contention that while the movie industry is creatively stagnating, we're on the verge of a new renaissance of technological innovation that will transform both movies and interactive entertainment into a deeper and more subjective experience. We're talking holographic immersion with complete volumetric capture so viewers can watch from the viewpoint of the director or select their own individual perspectives. Imagine going into the Matrix with Neo or being transported into the watercolor heaven of What Dreams May Come.

In 2009, John founded a new type of development entity called FLOAT (hybrid) and serves as it's acting Chief Creative Officer. Float innovates and prototypes compelling interfaces between audiences and many types of media including television, gaming, search, social and augmented reality. John believes that there are threads in today's most exciting technologies that are leading toward a fundamental leap forward in the way people interact and immerse within all media.

Gaeta is currently the Creative Director of New Media and Experiences at Lucasfilm.
