Aaron Sims has been in the film industry for over 23 years specializing in character design for films. His credits include Men in Black, A.I.: Artificial Intelligence, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Constantine, War of the Worlds; and most recently I Am Legend, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, The Golden Compass, The Incredible Hulk, The Mummy 3, and The Day The Earth Stood Still. Aaron began his career in Makeup Effects, designing and creating characters.
His life-long experience with the visual arts – drawing, painting, sculpting, airbrushing – provided the foundation for the early part of his career. Once the technology was available, he quickly learned Photoshop and many other 3D design/animation programs, progressing into Visual Effects. Now, his years of experience with these mediums have helped hone his own specialized approach to character design.
He has worked for two Academy Award-winning Makeup Effects houses: Rick Baker’s Cinovation and Stan Winston Studio. Working as Winston’s Art Director for both the Makeup Effects and Visual Effects departments helped to prepare him for founding The Aaron Sims Company.
