Hello everyone my name is Sandro Blattner and I was one of the winners back in 2010 I had won the Compositing category that was then called the CG Student Awards.
Back then I was graduating from college and I was really just looking for ways to get my work out there and connect with other people from industry and other graduates and joining the awards really allowed me to do that.
I have seen spent most of my time at Method Studis in LA as well as a little bit of time at Digital Domain as a Compositing Supervisor I spent most of the time as a Compositing Supervisor on features such as Cloud Atlas, Iron Man 3, Guardians of the Galaxy, and a lot of others. I had the pleasure working on a lot of other projects with great artists so it’s been a fun ride.
I think The Rookies is a great way to get your work and your name out there and connect with other people.
Really if you’re thinking about joining The Rookies you should do it. I think it’s a great way to get your work and your name out there and connect with other people. Only good things can come from so, I think should go for it. Good luck!
