As a visual effects artist, Yusaku Yasuda got his nickname “Dr Yu” due to his superhuman ability for finding solutions to seemingly impossible problems. He spent 17 years at Japan’s largest post production company Imagica, before joining Cutters Studios in 2013.

As Director of Technology at Cutters Studios, Dr Yu designs custom technology pipelines for each and every production to ensure optimal efficiency, develops detailed previs imaging to map out live action shoots and make critical equipment and performance decisions prior to arriving on set, operates as visual effects supervisor on VFX heavy projects, plays an integral role in production design, and applies the finishing magic to all Cutters Studios creations.

Dr Yu’s accolades are too many to count or list. But it’s safe to say he is the market’s top visual effects mind.
