Jared Potter, a Yelm resident for nearly 20 years, has found success in the film industry.

Whether it's animation or effects work in television shows, movies or commercials, Potter has done it all.

He recently completed his work for the movie and television remake of Beavis and Butt-Head.

"Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe" was released to Paramount Plus' streaming service on June 23. Potter said most of his work on the movie included 3D modeling, animation and compositing work.

"That was a blast. It was a lot of work, but really, really fun," Potter said. "It was a tough job, but it was super rewarding. Everything is a niche audience these days, but when Beavis and Butt-Head was marketed, it was marketed all over the place. That was super rewarding."

Prior to his work with the movie, Potter found his big break in the film industry while he worked as a visual effects artist and later as the supervisor for the television series "Z Nation."

The show originally appeared on the SyFy Network. The zombie series, produced in Spokane, lasted for five seasons and 68 episodes.

"I found out about it on a Craigslist ad and I wanted to see if I could work for those guys," Potter said. "And five seasons later, I'd say we had a blast."
