Taylor was an animator and animation supervisor through much of ILM's CG revolution in the 90s. He worked as an animator on The Mask(1994), Dragonheart(1996), and The Lost World(1997). He then went to work at Digital Domain, where he was nominated for an Best VFX Academy Award for Real Steel(2011) and finished his career at Weta. He passed away a few days ago at the age of 69.

Here is THR's report on this:

The one great thing about Taylor I remember as an ILM fan, aside from his animation work on a bunch of films, was the great dvd commentary he did with Stan Winston and John Rosengrant for Jurassic Park 3. That commentary was one of the best vfx ones I've heard.
