Jon Weigand BA ’97 writes: “After starting my film and video career with skills I learned back in the L&C Graphics Lab, I helped the Portland-based stop-motion animation studio ShadowMachine craft the Academy Award-winning Pinocchio for Netflix last year. It was a new role for me, working as a visual effects survey lead. My team documented shots for the VFX studio based in Toronto and scanned the film’s assets with 3D LIDAR scanners. I’m very proud of the film and the crew I got to make it with!”


Jon Weigand BA ’97 writes: “I moved back to Portland with my family in 2017. After marrying my partner in Tucson a decade ago, we moved to Seattle. Our two daughters have now entered elementary school, and our entire family careens from week to week, trying to keep wheels on the rails. In 2020, I’ll start work on Pinocchio, produced by Shadow Machine and Netflix.”
