Greg MacGillivray's film career spans more than 30 years. As a cinematographer, he has shot more 70mm film than anyone in cinema history -- more than two million feet. His Laguna Beach company has been dedicated to the large screen motion picture format since the production of the IMAX® film, To Fly!, which he co-produced and directed with his partner, the late Jim Freeman in 1976. MacGillivray also worked in Hollywood, directing and photographing for Stanley Kubrick on the Shining, and filming for the Academy Award® nominees Jonathan Livingston Seagull and The Towering Inferno.

MacGillivray is well-known in the industry for artistic and technical innovation in the giant format. He has initiated the development of three cameras for the IMAX® format -- the high-speed (slow-motion) camera, the industry's first lightweight camera, and the "all-weather" camera used during filming on Mount Everest.

Recent tributes to MacGillivray and company include a 2000 Academy Award® nomination for
Dolphins for Best Documentary Short Subject and a 1995 Academy Award nomination for The Living Sea for Best Documentary Short Subject. In 1998, the company's dramatic film about climbing the world's tallest peak, Everest, became the first large-format film ever to reach the top 10 box office chart in Daily Variety. In 1996, the company's IMAX® theatre classic, To Fly!, was selected by the Library of Congress for inclusion in America's film archives. The first large format film to receive this honor, To Fly! joined such cinema greats as Gone With the Wind, Star Wars and Citizen Kane. In 2001, the IMAX Corporation inducted To Fly! into the IMAX Hall of Fame.
