Elizabeth Montes — Head of Production, The Third Floor

339_Liz_Montes_Full.jpg

Liz Montes bumped into someone at an LA party—and landed a job at Digital Domain. Here, she worked alongside Chris on movies including Real Steel and Oblivion. Then she moved to visualization specialist The Third Floor, where she worked as a production manager and producer on blockbusters including Edge of Tomorrow, Solo: A Star Wars Story, and Avengers: Endgame.

In this podcast, Liz talks about how The Third Floor’s expertise in previs has made it a perfect fit for the emerging world of virtual production. She delves into how The Mandalorian’s immersive set, Volume, helped the cast and crew create incredible worlds in real-time. She also discusses The Third Floor’s work on Loki, how gaming graduates are taking over VFX, and how working from home has changed the industry.
