Hi, my name is Callum Reeve and I am a 2D Compositor. I am passionate about many things but films is the thing I am most passionate about. I love watching, I love finding out how they are made and now I love to make them. If I could pick where my career started, I would like to be working as a Junior Compositor or Roto/Prep Artist at any VFX studio (primarily TV or Film).

WHAT IS YOUR DREAM JOB TO START YOUR CAREER WITH?
If I was to pick a dream job to start my career it would be a Junior Compositor at Blur Studio in Los Angles.
DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN FIVE WORDS OR LESS.
Driven, Reliable, Engaging, Respectful, Honest.
IF YOU WERE AN ANIMAL, WHICH ONE WOULD YOU BE? AND WHY?
Wolf, because I can work with the pack to achieve a goal but I can also function efficiently alone too.
WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN FIVE YEARS TIME?
In five years I see myself working as a Mid Level Compositor at a respectable VFX studio working on TV & Movies while also pushing to become a senior compositor.
TELL US OF AN ACHIEVEMENT YOU'RE PROUD OF.
An achievement I am very proud of is JOE, this is the short film I directed as part of a group project while at Escape Studio. I am also very proud of the accolades it is receiving at film festivals.
WOULD YOU RATHER BE A WIZARD, JEDI OR SUPERHERO? AND WHY?
I would be a Jedi because I would like to be as mindful as they are. They focus solely on the task in hand and do not let other things distracted them. Plus a lightsaber would be neat.
WHAT MOVIE INSPIRED YOU THE MOST TO CHOOSE THIS
Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. This was my inspiration as it was one of the first film I saw with my dad and I remember being amazed at the way it looked and I wanted to know how they did that.
WHY DO YOU DESERVE A GREATER SHARE OF SPACE IN THE YEAR BOOK?
I think I deserve a greater share of space in the year book because I feel that I have improved massively my craft over the past year and I would like a platform to show how I have improved.
