Legend3D, a 2D-to-3D conversion technology and production company, announced two director level appointments and a new general manager. Adam Li will be joining the company as director of software engineering, Stephanie Winslow will serve as the new director of business development, and Robert McInnis, previously Legend3D director of compositing, will move into the role of general manager.
Li brings a Ph.D. in Physics and more than 14 years of consumer electronics industry experience to the director of software engineering position. With a background and expertise in technical consulting and engineering, he has held previous positions with Sony Electronics and several imaging technology startups including DivX, where he was one of the primary engineering architects of its compression and video software. Li will work closely with Dr. Barry Sandrew, Legend3D’s founder, as well as with the research and development team to continue advancing the company’s proprietary 2D-to-3D imaging technology and conversion pipeline.
Before joining Legend3D as director of business development, Winslow was Legendary Pictures’ director of production and stereo production supervisor. With her prior experience facilitating aspects of pre-production, production and postproduction processes on such films as Zack Snyder’s Watchmen and Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim, Winslow will foster current partner relationships and manage new business opportunities while supporting Legend3D’s sales and production efforts.
