Dougie KerrArt Director & VFX LeadPhoenix Labs

Dougie Kerr, Art Director & VFX Lead, Phoenix Labs Dougie knew that he wanted to be involved in the VFX Industry from a young age, ever since he saw his first proton stream in the original Ghostbusters movie and activated one for himself in the Commodore 64 video game adaptation. To pursue his VFX dreams, Dougie attended the Vancouver Film School shortly after graduating from high-school. Upon completion of the 3D Animation & Visual Effects program in late 2001, Dougie started the first chapter of his career as a VFX Artist in the Film, Television, and Motion Graphics Industry. In 2010, Dougie followed his passion for art and technology by joining a Vancouver video game company where he was able to make the transition into a new and challenging role as a Real-Time VFX Artist. In May of 2015, he was introduced to an independent 18-person video game start-up with big aspirations, incredible values, and fantastic leadership. Dougie jumped at the opportunity to work with the incredible talent at this new gaming company named Phoenix Labs, on a video game eventually known as Dauntless. Dougie is currently the Art Director and VFX Lead for a brand new, unannounced IP at Phoenix Labs.
