Growing up on a farm in Western Kansas, Hamilton was inspired by classic films like Back to the Future, Star Wars, and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. These films, chock-full of visual storytelling special effects, caused him to dream about creating in a medium that had no boundaries.
A 13 year veteran in the industry, Lewis began his journey with BFA in Computer Animation and a minor in Digital Film from Ringling College of Art and Design, Lewis created an animated short, Cadillac ’59, and was nominated for a 2009 Student Academy Award by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences. This propelled him straight from Ringling into a career at DreamWorks Animation as a Previsualization Artist on 2009’s Oscar nominated, How to Train Your Dragon.
After 7 years and 9 productions at DreamWorks, Lewis transitioned into the world of live action filmmaking, leading artists on Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. Shaping many of the massive sequences promoted Lewis to supervisor for Marvel’s Spider-man: Far From Home, and he has spent the majority of his time in the MCU, most recently traveling to London for on set virtual production and supervising cross site teams for Marvel’s Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
