2 years ago I joined onto another short film project called Sonder and earlier this year we completed the “short” film (it’s 14 minutes long). Since then, Sonder has been in various film festivals and winning all kinds of awards. We now qualify for Oscar nominations! Last week, our film has finally been released online for all the world to see. It’s been getting a lot of views and many great reviews. I hope everyone enjoys the film!Read More
Let me introduce, an artist, and a friend of mine who I met back during my time at Academy of Art University, Patrick William Bramley. We first had the chance to work together on some projects such as Aria for a Cow and Valiant and more recently I also got to work with him at Ingenuity Studios where he is now currently working as a sequence lead compositor.
Since graduating in 2015, Patrick has worked on many major hit television series, and features such as a Series of Series of Unfortunate Events, Jessica Jones S1, Westworld S1, DareDevil S2, Live by Night, Going in Style Nerve, and HBO’s Confirmation, just to name a few. When not freelance contracting at a studio, he works as an independent visual effects supervisor. He is currently supervising an independent feature film titled “Rightful”.Read More
"Go to a film studio", "Go do compositing", "You'll learn so much" was what one of the mentors while I was an apprentice at Disney told me one night. While I agreed since I have seen some of the amazing things that live action compositors do with all their tricks and hacks but oof, live action sounds like a lot of roto and rotopaint.
I somehow did end up as a compositor for live action at Ingenuity Studios, and my previous experience was a semester of Intro to Nuke class in school. It was quite stressful since I was unsure if my work was good enough quality and working in primarily episodic TV meant that it was a far faster pace than feature film. I did learn a lot though such as how to stabilize my shot first before doing rotos and rotopaints and then matchmoving it back, 3d tracking, split screens, fluid morphs, etc. One very scary thing that I learned was how to do beauty fixes since this means not only can I use Photoshop to touch up photos but now I can also touch up videos, too! Never tell your friends and family!Read More
