Bethany Onstad (Pederson)

Class of 2003

After graduation I pursued a career in Visual Effects. I moved to Los Angeles in 2007 to start my first job after receiving my Bachelors degree. I've worked for several companies in Los Angeles since then working on tv, and film. My highlight, so far, of my career is landing a job with the studio called Digital Domain. They are most known for their work (and Oscars) on Titanic and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. I'm currently doing work on the new Tron movie, Tron:Legacy. I also got to experience my first awards show along with my husband, The Streamy Awards. My husband and I received an award for Best Visual Effects in a Web Series. The series is called Fear Clinic on Since then our careers have been going strong. We never imagined coming from Strum (and Nick is from Osseo) to Los Angeles and having such amazing careers!
