James Clyne attended the University of California at Santa Barbara where he studied Fine Art and Painting. Eager to focus on design, he attended Art Center College of Design as an Industrial Design major focusing on entertainment design. Clyne began his professional career designing creatures, characters, and environments for gaming companies such as Sega, Activision, and Pulse Entertainment. Wanting to expand his work in entertainment design further, James began consulting as a concept artist and storyboard artist for special effects houses such as Digital Domain and Rhythm and Hues. His early work in film began with Terry Gilliam’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Soon to follow were Instinct, Titan A.E., Mission to Mars, Galaxy Quest, Mystery Men, A.I.-Artificial Intelligence, Minority Report, The Polar Express, and Troy for which he provided conceptual designs for environments, sets, props, matte paintings, and vehicles.
"James Clyne is a master when it comes to translating his inner worlds of gigantic structures and machines. His smart construction approach, based on a very open abstract process, gives to his productions a very original feel unseen anywhere else. He is an artist which has recreated a new sci-fi vocabulary with an amazing precision and talent."
