Why does Marvel & Stranger Things look so good? Find out on C-Level: Guest Chris LeDoux Crafty Apes

- People look at us like we're nuts and they're like, the thing is, I love it. They're like, well don't you just wanna go home sometime and watch television? I'm like no, I wanna make television.  - [DeBlasio] On this episode of "C Level", I sit down with my good friend Chris LeDoux, founder and VFX Supervisor of Crafty Apes, the VFX company behind "Stranger Things", "Jumanji", "Doctor Strange" and many more. For the very small percentage of people that don't know who Crafty Ape is and who you are, gimme a little of the background. How did you get started, where are you from, what's Crafty Apes about?  - Originally from an island in Alaska called Kodiak Island and that's where I originally hailed from and my family hails from 'cause it's a family business and I had moved to San Francisco in 2004 and did my first visual effects job there for movie called "Sin City".  - Yup, very familiar, yeah.  - And it was fun because I loved it, fell in love with the business and in 2005, moved to Los Angeles. So in 2005, moved to Los Angeles, spent about a year in a random city called Santa Maria, where we made "Pan's Labyrinth" and did some other movies and then went back to L.A. and then in 2007, we started the, sorry, 2011 we started the company. We started in, actually, technically for three months, we started in Venice at this 200 square foot trailer park. Very humble beginnings.  - A lot of people had those humble beginnings.  - It was just me, Tim and Jason and Mark in an office and couple months later, we went to Culver City and while we were there, one of our first clients was Lionsgate and Tyler Perry specifically. So that started drawing me to Atlanta and I started filming here in 2012, 2013 and while I was here, I started learning about the actual tax credit and how it worked and I started, you can almost smell the buzz in the air, feel it. There was like man, there's something happening here and I looked around, there wasn't any other really VFX companies of a certain caliber and went back to California and I told everyone I said hey, I think we should expand to Atlanta, let's go for it and it took some convincing, there was some back and forth but my brother Tim was strongly on board with it and he's the one who actually did the first operation out here. So we got a call in March of 2014 for a pilot and it was a colleague of ours who was doing a TV show and said hey, I heard you guys were in Atlanta and we're like, totally. And we filed the paperwork, Tim and our other colleague Josh jumped in a truck and drove across the country with a bunch of computers and we started downtown. And I'm not even, it was close to underground and close to gunshots and they did the pilot and then I was already doing a TV show that was based out of here but we weren't here officially yet. I started filming in May and I was like okay, we gotta be out here. I called my wife and she'd just given birth to our child. By the way, we're moving to Atlanta. - And pump, here it is!

Chris LeDoux - Country Singer

It was an honor to speak with Chris before his untimely death. He was the real deal. There was no faking it when he sang a country song. His success still stands.

Enough tears have fallen to fill the Powder River through Kaycee, Wyoming where Chris LeDoux called home. He died of a rare form of cancer in March of 2005. During his all-too-short 56 years of life, LeDoux was indeed a rare breed. Beloved by the rodeo world, LeDoux’s music captured the spirit of the sport - and of the American West - as few will ever likely match.

The guitar-shaped base stonework is completed and fund raising is well ahead of schedule for the life plus quarter-sized bronze that will be set as centerpiece of Chris LeDoux Memorial Park in Kaycee, Wyoming. Project Coordinator Pam Kinchen says she has contacted sculptor Michael Thomas of Buffalo, Wyoming to tell him the timetable is being moved up in order to open the park by next fall. Thomas’ work “Good Ride Cowboy” in tabletop form has been used as the primary fund-raising tool. It depicts hometown hero LeDoux riding the horse “Stormy Weather” to a world championship in 1976. Chris LeDoux moved on to a successful music and concert career, selling more than six million records. He died of a rare form of cancer in 2005. The annual LeDoux tribute pro rodeo, art show and concert is Oct. 31- Nov. 1 in Casper. More information on it is available by going to: www.wyomingtourism.org
