Toni Pace Cartensen also worked on 'Star Trek' series

Toni Pace Carstensen, a visual effects producer whose credits include “Avatar” and the remastered “Star Trek” TV series, has joined 3D conversion company Legend3D.

Carsetensen told Variety she’s especially excited about working with Legend3D because she and the company’s founder, Barry Sandrew, share an unusual background: neuroscience. “That’s how we bonded a number of years ago.”

Carstensen added “With my background in production, particularly stereo production, I’m in a position to create a smooth interface between the production community and Legend3D.”
