67 – Jean Bolte – ILM Texture Artist

For this episode I had the pleasure of speaking with the ultra talented and lovely human being… Jean Bolte, that’s BoltE, rhymes with Nick Nolte as she told me.

Jean has worked in the film industry for many years. She started in wigs and beard, then moved to ILM in time for Willow for which she was a model maker. The thumbnail for the episode shows Jean working on the ostrich for the famous morphing scene.

She then went to work on Hook, Jumanji, Men in Black, The Phantom Menace and so many more huge movies as a digital texture artist.

She’s recently handed in her notice to ILM but is going to be staying very much in the creative world.

Jean was just so great to talk to, we hit it off immediately. Chatting with her was surprisingly relaxing and also very inspiring.

As promised here are the links to my videos, my merch and my patreon. Thanks for your support.
