BIOGRAPHY FOR PAT O'NEILL:

Pat O'Neill received his MFA in graphic design and photography from the
department of Design at UCLA, where his mentor was photographer Robert
Heineken. He produced his first short film in 1963 in collaboration with
computer-graphics innovator Robert Abel.

O'Neill has been a member of the experimental film scene in the 60's and
70's, pioneering the free-flowing, manipulated live-action imagery.
He and his visual effects company, Lookout Mountain Films, have achieved
some of the best known effects for Hollywood films since the 1970s, from
"Return of the Jedi" through "The Game."

His work has been screened in numerous venues including New York Film
Festival, Berlin International Film Festival, at Telluride, London, Los
Angeles, the Whitney Biennale, and at the Museum of Contemporary Art,
Los Angeles (MOCA). All his films are internationally distributed and in
the collections of educational institutions and museums, from the
Cinematheque Français to the Austrian Film Archives.

O'Neill is the recipient of Filmmakers' Grants from the National
Endowment for the Arts, The American Film Institute, The Guggenheim
Memorial Foundation and The Rockefeller Foundation.
