visual effects professional.
I've always had an immense passion for visual effects. It's the perfect mixture of technical prowess and creativity. I thrive on challenges and complex problems which push me to find creative solutions. My experience in a vast range of filmmaking allow me to be an effective communicator and understand others in the production pipeline. When I'm on set, I can accordingly setup shots and prepare them for a seamless transition to post-production. Being in the VFX field, I always keep my edge with the newest technologies, software and workflows.
I'm a visual effects professional with a diverse set of skills.
I apply advanced creative and technical techniques to combine multi-layered digital content into a seamless result. My deep understanding of Nuke lets me create fast and efficient workflows to any task. I have a thorough understanding of physics and how natural elements work and behave in the real world, which lets me integrate computer generated imagery with the optimal mix of realism and creativity.
I collaborate with directors, producers and department heads to discuss the visual effects of each project and create a cost effective plan of filming them. I then attend the shooting of those sequences and ensure they are captured as planned and guide the filmmakers to achieve the best possible result. Many times things change from planning to production so adapting to the circumstances and providing solutions on-set happens quite often.
I've developed numerous propriety tools for Nuke using python and TCL. These tools give artists an easy to use UI with highly functional code, allowing them to achieve a consistent look with minimal effort. I enjoy taking Nuke to it's limits and finding new ways to implement old tricks! I've established intricate pipeline structures for studios and integration with production tracking software like Shotgrid and Ftrack.
