FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — A former Fort St. John resident, Braden Scheck, is credited in the new movie, Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse.
Scheck worked as an associate production manager in the new Spider-Man movie, overseeing and managing teams of people.
He says the movie is getting good reviews, and he is really proud of it.
“I’m excited to see it,” said Scheck, adding that he will be able to view the final product Saturday morning during a team screening.
“Eventually, when Spider-Verse was coming to an end, there was an opportunity to move over to Disney as a production supervisor, so that’s where I’ve landed now.”
Scheck’s journey into film began in Fort St. John, where he was born and raised, where his love for art began.
After he graduated high school in Fort St. John, he went to College in Red Deer before transferring to Emily Carr in Vancouver.
He started in photography and worked as an actor on TV and film sets during his first year.
“I did a year in photography and then did some open studies, and then eventually I transferred my major from photography into film,” Scheck explained.
“I graduated from Emily Carr in 2016 with my degree in film.”
During his final months in university, he was trying to find a way to get his foot in the door to work on movie sets.
Scheck eventually found a job listing as a “runner” at a Technicolor-owned studio called MPC before being promoted to production assistant.
“I worked on a ton of projects at MPC in Vancouver,” Scheck said.
After being promoted to production coordinator, he began working for Sony Pictures.
“The nice thing that drew me to Sony is that they did both visual effects work and computer-generated animated feature work,” Scheck explained.
Though he cannot talk about what he is working on now, the artist has worked on the Fifty Shades film series, The Darkest Minds, Aquaman, Men in Black: International, The Mitchells vs the Machines and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
