Working with the team behind the seminal film Terminator 2, Justin couldn't have asked for a better introduction into the then fledging computer graphics industry in London during the early 1990's. Based at the Computer FIlm Company and then later at the Neville Body Research Studio together with the team at 'Lost In Space' he contributed to a range of award winning projects for film, television and new media that included clients such as the Rolling Stones, Disney, Industrial Light & Magic, Pixar, Passion Pictures, Saatchi & Saatchi, The Natural History Museum, Buena Vista International & United Artist to name but a few.
