UC Magazine reports on the roles that two UC alumni played in the success of the recent feature film Oz: The Great and Powerful:
- Debbie Denise, CCM ’73, visual effects executive producer
- Jessica Peel-Scott, DAAP ’93, assistant costume designer.
CCM alumna Debbie Denise is executive vice president of production at the Academy Award-winning visual effects and animation studio Sony Pictures Imageworks, which Disney hired for the film. Considered one of the country’s most experienced visual-effects production executives, Denise oversees production of all the company’s films, which have included Harry Potter, The Amazing Spider-Man and Men In Black 3. She is particularly an expert on 3-D Stereoscopic Production.
