Imagination Meets Reality: Tom Armbruster

May 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Tom Armbruster, an innovator in entertainment technology, will share the lessons he’s learned as a Christian in the film industry.
Tom Armbruster is the president and CEO of 209 group, MoCap Solutions, and Novation Productions. These companies focus on technology in media and entertainment, primarily feature films, television, AAA video games, and virtual/augmented reality. If you’ve seen The Mandalorian or Avatar, you’ve already seen Tom’s work! Early in his career, Tom worked as an automotive design engineer. His design work used cutting-edge computer-aided design (CAD) and solid modeling software to create sophisticated 3D models of complex automotive components and eventually included the use of emerging visualization and simulation tools that allowed for human interaction with these 3D models. This mixture of engineering design and animation eventually led him to the CG animation/entertainment world. Tom holds a degree in mechanical engineering from Western Michigan University.
