Scott Patton, whose Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Iron Man 2, and Avatar images are shown bellow, was cool enough to share a few words with me.

Check out the gallery, and links to Scott Patton after the excerpt.

NR: Being a local of Southern California, and just finishing work on ‘Pirates’, have you ever been inspired by what is presented at the Disneyland park?

Scott Patton: Oh yeah! Being a native I always thought ‘oh hey that is cool – I want to do that!’.

NR: Could you see yourself ever working on a project where you were creating the 2D/3D images of some of the animatronics at Disney?

SP: Of course. Some of the projects I’ve worked on already deal in the realm of creating a 3D image to be rendered into a full outfit, object, and living working part of a set.

NR: How was it working on ‘Pirates’?

SP: The experience was a pleasant one. Can’t you tell! Did you see the work inside!? (referring to the gallery)

NR: Haha, yes we saw your badass works inside. You practical run the place! Well before I let you wonder off, do you mind taking a picture with our genius-creative work of art, Nerdzilla!? He’s hiding under my Clark Kent-ish costume.

SP: Definitely. HEY! That’s me in your photo!

NR: Thanks Scott!
