Who is Greg Kimble?

  Date: October 21, 2002
Greg Kimble is a classically trained visual effects supervisor with credits dating back to the Special Edition of "Close Encounters". An avid "Trekie," his first screen credit was on the original Star Trek film, where he shot all the Klingon war birds and the V'ger craft.

Later, he got John Glenn safely back to Earth in "The Right Stuff," made two Michael J. Foxes in "Back To The Future 2," and multiplied the armies in "Braveheart."

The digital age brought many disaster films, like "Volcano," "Titanic," "Armageddon," and "Independence Day," where as Optical Supervisor, he was responsible for every shot in the picture.

A passionate booster of film preservation, he assisted on the restoration of "A Clockwork Orange" and was the restoration supervisor of "Yellow Submarine."

In addition to his rabid interest in Cinerama, he is often found at film festivals where his live-narrated documentary on the history of visual effects amazes with its examples of pre-digital effects technology dating back to the very beginnings of film in 1895.
