Hi, I'm Dom, a VFX Editor. From concept to delivery, I love seeing shots progress for an amazing final product! I like the challenge VFX editorial brings and am constantly developing my skills. I'd like to start my career as a Junior or Assistant VFX Editor.

GET TO KNOW DOMINIC

Describe yourself in 5 words.

Positive, Resilient, Ambitious, Dependable and Bold.

What are your hobbies and interests?

I love exposing myself to a myriad of cultures. I have travelled the world exploring some of the most remote parts of countries and meeting the locals. Additionally, I participate in sports such as international handball, parkour and skydiving. I am humbled to have met some incredible people from around the world; together, we have worked on projects (creative and volunteer) pushing the boundaries of our stereotypical world. I love to bring those experiences and influences to the table when working with creatives and clients.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

In 5 years, I hope to be a VFX Editor with a collection of credits under my belt. I'm interested in the fast-paced turnarounds of advertising and the extensive work in film and episodic television. I'd like to be an active member of my team finding ways to support and develop workflows. Teaching and mentoring is something I am very proud of and I hope to continue this with new members or young creatives interested in VFX.

Tell us an achievement you're proud of.

The achievement I am most proud of is the fastest turnaround for a commercial I have ever done. For a Christmas commercial for Sky, I was on board as a Production Assistant. This project was a last-minute idea and we had to scramble to be ready: with under 24 hours before we started filming, I had to organise and prioritise tasks. 8 remote actors needed to be briefed and a custom studio prepared. I generated a detailed plan with backups to keep the film day running smoothly. All in all, it was a fun two days of quick problem-solving and integrating into a team. Santa even said Hello!

Which movie inspired you the most to choose this career path?

Pacific Rim. Seeing a film with such detailed and meticulous VFX was seriously interesting. When the breakdowns were released, it was cool to see how many versions the hero asset went through. The way everything came together for the final product was phenomenal.

If your life was a movie what would it be?

As much as I would like to say Mean Girls (it is one of my favourites), I would have to say Toy Story 4. It is a film that values friends and family and always being there in a crisis. There's a range of characters in Toy Story and I find it reflective of how I meet everyone and am accepting to all.

What was your crowning moment of your time at Escape?

Working with my team to create our short film 'Little Gestures'. It has done quite well in the festival circuit and, as a Producer, I have also been invited for interviews. It was great to explain the VFX and animation process, as well as meet our film community.
