Andrew Li Productions Inc. | Creative Ideas for Film and Design


Andrew Li Productions Inc.

There is no problem that a group of dedicated, intelligent, creative people cannot solve. I believe in working collaboratively to find the best solutions to any design problem. For over 18 years in the film industry working as an art director and 3D digital set designer, this collaborative approach is what I try to put into practice every day. The results speak for themselves in projects like Power Rangers, Star Trek Beyond, Tomorrowland, Godzilla, Pacific Rim, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, 2012, Tron Legacy, Watchmen, Night at the Museum, X-Men 2 and X-Men 3 to name a few among over 40 feature films and TV productions that I have worked on with some of the most talented production designers in the film industry.

In architecture, I was project architect on many residential and commercial buildings in award-winning firms in Vancouver, Seattle, Hong Kong and London, U.K.

My goal is to work with my clients to find the best and most cost-effective process to create the best possible product - whether that product is a beautiful film set, concept design or a new building. I am based in Vancouver, Canada, but I can travel to anywhere to work on your project!
