What course did you study?

Master in Compositing (MA)

What are you working on at the moment?

I am currently a Nuke Compositor in Unit VFX.

What work are you most proud of working on and is your most notable achievement?

The movie I am working on at the moment! I can’t talk too much about this movie because it’s not yet been released but I am really proud of working on this sci-fi movie, from keying to finishing the shot. I am a new compositor and have just freshly stepped into the industry and so it’s very exciting for me to finish a movie - it has been full of challenges and excitement.

If you had to sum up your time at Escape Studios in one word, what would it be and why?

Valuable. I got more than I expected. Skills, friendship and job opportunities.

What lessons have you learnt during your time studying and your time working in VFX?

I have learnt that whatever your background and education level is, when you have the skill and passion you can achieve what you want. When I studied at Escape Studios I focused on the quality of the showreel and how to work with your team. Skill and correct compositing manner are the main elements I have learnt in VFX industry.

What is your advice for those considering entering the industry?

It’s all about the quality of your showreel. A good showreel can bring you lots of interview opportunities. Keep researching what it means by a good showreel, don’t be shy to send your work to different people for comments and suggestion.

What's your favourite movie and why?

Inception. Best screenplay ever. It may have the best VFX but we still need a good story and screenplay to support this. Christopher Nolan is my hero and he is the reason that I want to be a VFX artist.
