He was instantly driven to become a film maker, but had the issue of How do you become a film maker. He started studying, and soon after, Jurassic Park came out. It was clear this was the future of film. So he taught himself visual effects, creating dinosaurs on Windows 95. Fortunately Windows has moved on since then. Throughout his career he quit the BBC a few times, and did a series of freelance jobs. And then he turned 30. This was past his personal deadline to become a film maker. So he dropped everything and went to Hollywood. Long story short, Gareth Edwards has now directed and created films including Monsters, Godzilla and most recently Star Wars: Rogue One. LANDING ON MARS#OGILVYSXSW#OGILVYSXSWBacked by extensive research and the expertise of NASA and MIT research, Mars 2030 is a VR experience that provides an accurate, realistic rendition of life as one of the first astronauts to arrive on Mars.
