Bob O’Neil worked at Universal Studios for nearly 40 years, retired, and recently moved to Prescott. The first 15 years at Universal were spent in the Title & Optical Department supervising visual effects on such feature titles as “Out of Africa”, “Somewhere in Time”, “Animal House”, and “Same Time Next Year”. In the television area he worked on series like “Murder She Wrote”, “Magnum”, “Simon & Simon”, “Battlestar Galactia”, and many, many more. He spent the final 25 years doing analogue film preservation, restoration, and asset management. In this area he worked on such titles as “Dracula”, “Bride of Frankenstein”, “All Quiet On the Western Front”, “To Kill A Mockingbird”, “Double Indemnity”, “Psycho”, and “Rear Window”. Bob’s favorite, and most challenging, film was Orson Well’s “Touch of Evil” that won the New York Film Critics, Boston Film Critics, National Film Critics, and Los Angeles Film Critics awards for restoring the directors cut of this wonderful film. Bob is a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, Society of Motion Picture Engineers, and The Association of Moving Image Archivists.
