Jonathan is one of our 3D Tutors at Escape Studios. He has worked in VFX for over 10 years and has had every role in Nuke from working in stereo, to prep, to comp, to comp supervisor. He's worked in higher education for 12 years. His VFX work has taken him to Hengdian, China one of the largest film studios in the world, as a Comp Supervisor.

Jon's favourite weapons of choice are Nuke, Silhouette, Maya, Zbrush, Mari, 3D Equalizer, pretty much the whole VFX pipeline stored in his brain. Jonathan is currently teaching 2D and 3D on our full-time and part-time VFX courses and a member of the VFX society.
