Gary Lee started his professional career while he was a student of Art Center in Pasadena. During his second term at school, at the age of 19, he was recruited by LucasFilm to work on Star Wars Episodes 2 and 3 at the Skywalker Ranch as a Cinematic/ Pre-viz Artist. The opportunity was a result of an animated short he directed during his high school years. Gary was the youngest on the team to be hired or involved on that aspect of the Star Wars.
After several years, Gary decided to pursue his dream of working on his own personal projects. He left Lucasfilm after Star Wars completed and headed back to Los Angeles in order to develop and create some of his thoughts and projects. The short, "Hector Corp.", was one idea Gary really wanted to produce. He realized making "Hector Corp." would require certain capital he lacked during that period. He was then hired to work on cinematics for Dreamworks Animation and with the money saved from that, “Hector Corp.” came to life.
Gary has been involved in the camera works department for several major Dreamworks Animation productions; such as, "Over the Hedge", "Kung Fu Panda", and Dreamworks' first stereoscopic 3D film, "Monsters Vs. Aliens". He is the soul contributor for some of the major sequences on both "Kung Fu Panda" and "Monsters Vs. Aliens", which have been well received by the public.
Gary Lee was just got promoted as the primary cinematographer for "Kung Pu Panda 2" and is in charge of the films entire cinematic style. He is 28 years old now and the youngest person ever to be the head of a department on a major studio film at Dreamworks Animation.
