About

Hello and thank you for visiting Halcyon Realms. I’m Vong yonghow, a CG artist from Singapore.

I work at Industrial Light & Magic (ILM), Lucasfilm Singapore as a Lighting Technical Director. Some of the films I’ve worked on include Rango, Transformers – Dark of the Moon & Edge Of Extinction, Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Marvel’s The Avengers and Star Trek Into Darkness. ( my demoreel/CV is here. )

Prior to this I stayed in Tokyo for six years studying film at Toho Gakuen under a NAC scholarship before going to Sunrise Animation Studios to work on Otomo Katsuhiro’s Freedom. I also did a short stint at Polygon Pictures after.

I  like animation, photography, film and pretty art books. I take some pictures every now and then.

Some trivia :

This is a newspaper article by Singapore Straits Times about my work on Freedom Project.

Here is a picture of Sunrise Animation Studio in Ogikubo, where I worked on Freedom Project.

I’m a manic fan of Paul Van Dyk ( PVD ), ChicaneThe Thrillseekers and Sir David Attenborough.
