He began his career in Tokyo working as an industrial designer for Sony under the supervision of the company’s legendary founder, Akio Morita. During that time, an exhibition of Dyas’ personal works led to an invitation from Industrial Light and Magic (ILM) to join their team in California where he began his film career as the visual effects Art Director on “Twister.” From there, Dyas developed his skills as a concept artist on a number of films, including Tim Burton’s “Planet of the Apes,” the Wachowski brothers’ “The Matrix Reloaded,” and Guillermo Del Toro’s “Mimic.” His first production design assignment was “X2: X-Men United” for Bryan Singer, followed closely by Terry Gilliam’s whimsical fantasy “The Brothers Grimm".
