Visual Effects

The disappointing thing about being a compositor is when you've done it right, no one knows you did anything at all. The challenge of hiding your work is also the thing I enjoy most. Knowing all the little details that go into reproducing color and light on screen opens your eyes to all the details of our real lives.

Compositing

Compositing is the final polish that adds computer generated elements over video footage with realistic blending. The tools I use to composite are NukeX, After Effects and other proprietary software. I specialize in tracking and match moving objects.

Lucas meet the challenge with the poise and grace of Vaslav Nijinsky whilst producing flawless work. Just as important as his execution, was the experience of working with him - he helped to make the a stressful situation, dare I say, enjoyable!”
