    Shriekfest Radio! Denise Gossett interviews filmmaker Rpin Suwannath!

    in Paranormal

    Born in Bangkok, Thailand to a Thai father and American Mother, Rpin Suwannath moved to the San Francisco Bay Area after completing elementary school at the International School, Bangkok.  He graduated from high school as valedictorian and completed his Bachelor of Science in Transportation Design in 1995 at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. Having also interned at George Lucas' Industrial Light and Magic, Rpin went immediately to work in visual effects on Warner Bros.' Batman Forever.  Seeing the powerful workstations as potential art department tools, Rpin moved to Pre-Production in 1998 and joined the art department, digitally modeling set concepts for The Haunting.  Soon after, Rpin became one of the first independent pioneers of the Pre-Visualization field and contributed to a number of films including the X-men franchise, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and the Matrix Sequels.  Rather than using Pre-Visualization as primarily a technical tool, Rpin created cut scenes with music and sound effects, enabling filmmakers to use the computer generated animatics as story tools.  Now an industry standard, Rpin has had a strong hand in seeing the field grow from one or two animators to establishing it's own department within the production process.  Having been given the opportunity to direct some 2nd unit as well as a video game unit for such films as Superman Returns and the Chronicles of Narnia, Rpin is on track to direct his first live action feature, Crater, based on an original idea.   Rpin's film "The Stowaway"  won Best SciFi Short Film at Shriekfest 2015!
