WHAT IS YOUR DREAM JOB TO START YOUR CAREER WITH?

Joining the industry as a Junior Compositor would be fantastic. It would be a great opportunity to kick start my compositing career.

DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN FIVE WORDS OR LESS.

Assiduous, Creative, Determined, Ambitious, Enthusiastic.

WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES?

I very much enjoy photography, it allows you to capture incredible moments and be very creative. It is also very relevant to my work and really helps me to add a level of camera realism to my compositing work.

DESCRIBE YOUR DREAM JOB.

A Senior Compositor, working with a fun enthusiastic team of artists to deliver a big, exciting feature film project.

DESCRIBE A CHALLENGE THAT YOU HAD TO OVERCOME IN YOUR GROUP PROJECTS.

Adapting to a leadership position in the team and balancing those responsibilities with my tasks as an artist.

WHICH MOVIE INSPIRED YOU THE MOST TO CHOOSE THIS

CAREER PATH?

The Avengers. When I saw this film in cinemas, I was very inspired to create some of the incredible visuals that I saw on screen. It instantly became my aim to one day be one of

those names in the credits.

DESCRIBE YOUR FAVORITE VFX SEQUENCE. 

My favourite VFX sequence is also in the Avengers. It would be the whole final section of the film, where the Avengers are fighting the Chitauri army in the streets of New York. The incredible work involved in recreating large parts of the city, and the realism of the result, was very inspiring. Also, the integration of CG characters, like Iron Man, really makes the film feel like my favourite comic and characters brought to life.

WHY DO YOU DESERVE A GREATER SHARE OF SPACE IN THE YEAR BOOK?

I don't believe that I deserve a greater share of space than anyone else. Everyone has worked really hard over the past 3 years and we've all grown as artists and people.
