Biographies: Glen McIntosh

Glen McIntosh has been in the film and animation business for almost twenty five years. After attending the Classical Animation Program at Sheridan College, McIntosh decided to pursue his passion for art and film. He moved from his childhood home in Calgary, Canada, to work for Don Bluth Studios in Dublin, Ireland and Twentieth Century Fox Studios in Phoenix, Arizona to pursue his dream of being an artist.

Driven by his desire to eventually work on films created by his two favorite directors, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, McIntosh strove to perfect his skills as an animator and filmmaker. In 1998, he was hired by Industrial Light & Magic. At ILM, McIntosh has had the opportunity to turn his dreams into reality, creating animation for George Lucas’ Star Wars: Episodes 1–3 and Steven Spielberg’s E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial.  His additional credits include Jurassic Park III (as the lead raptor animator), Hulk, War of The Worlds, Battleship and numerous commercials including Pepsi’s “Playacting” which received a Clio Award for Outstanding Character Animation. McIntosh’s latest work can be seen in the summer blockbuster, Jurassic World.
