SHOWREEL

A showreel is a video portfolio used by artists to share their work and apply for job. The video below is my showreel from 2019.

WHAT IS
VFX COMPOSITING ?

A Visual Effect Compositor (or Digital Compositor) is the last artist of a long chain. His role is to gather all computer generated imagery (CGI ) from other departments and to compose them into the final footage, like the most advanced patchwork.

 

His skills are as much technical like green screen extraction, tracking or retiming elements as artistic with a great knowledge of light, color and composition. Such artist is able to modify any element (photography, video, painting...) and integrate them in a picture with harmony and precision to create a believable and photographic picture.

 

On a photographic level, a VFX compositor must observe and analyze the world to be able to transcribe it on a realistic level. He must understand how the light in the physical world is reacting and affecting materials (wood, metal, skin...). A lot of physics interact such as reflection, refraction, transparency or subsurface scattering.

• Why is the sky blue ?  What exact blue depicts the dawn, noon or evening ? 

• Does the light react the same on wood, metal and flesh ?

Finally the artist reproduces the artefacts and impurities from the camera such as :

•  grain  •  bloom  •  lens distortion  •  lens flare

• dust and finger prints on the camera.

 

The camera deforms the picture and the spectator has unconsciously integrated these transformations as "this is how a movie looks like", the VFX compositor has to replicate them.

ABOUT ME

Led by passion, I grew up with only one idea : to reach the best companies around the world and work on the most prestigious shows.

The story begins in France, a 12 years old boy tries a VFX software for the first time. Trying to mimic the legendary effects from Stars Wars, he fell in love with the VFX universe and created his own stories sprinkled with light saber fights. Then he used this medium during art classes at school, the teacher, impressed and amused is the first one to encourage him on this road. Few years go by and the passion grow, I am 17 when I join the school ESMA (Montpellier). After studying animation and CGI for 4 years, I traveled to Paris, Bruxelles and Montréal to work for some of the leading companies in the industry.
