Visual Effects wizard from the Star Trek series and movies ...


Starting his media career in 1978, Ronald B Moore has become an iconic figure in the realm of visual effects. He has contributed to series right across the Star Trek franchise, including The Next Generation, Voyager and Enterprise, as well as movies such as "Ghostbusters" and "2010".

At school, Ron quickly became the school photographer. He spent several years as a Navy photographer, before entering Brooks Institute of Photography where he earned a degree in photographic arts, majoring in motion picture production. The next few years were spent studying electronics and video systems.

Ron is a member of both the International Photographers Guild and Motion Picture and Video Tape Editors Guild in Hollywood. He has been nominated for several visual effects awards including Emmys for Next Generation episodes "Q Who?"" and "Deja Q", and international Monitor awards for "Q Who?" and "Yesterday's Enterprise." In 1992 Ron won an Emmy from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for his work on the episode "A Matter of Time".

Ron worked on the visual effects for the "Black or White" music video for Michael Jackson, the Showtime pilot Public Enemy #2 with Dave Thomas, and the feature "Pure Luke" through OMR Productions Inc, a corporation created by Ron and his partner Dan Curry, who was also involved in the Star Trek franchise as a visual effects producer.

As supervisor of visual effects for the movie "Star Trek: Generations" Ron was able to keep a consistent look between the series and the first motion picture with the Next Generation series cast. Ron was responsible for the Stellar Cartography sequence as well as many other scenes in the movie.

Ron worked on Voyager as one of its two visual effects supervisers. These visual effects used more computer-generated ships and characters. He then moved on to Enterprise in due course, winning an Emmy in 2002 for the "Broken Bow" pilot in the category 'Outstanding Special Visual Effects for a Series'. He was voted into the Cult TV Hall of Fame – Special Effects category in 2003. We were delighted when Ron joined us for Cult TV 2006.
