Compositing Final Major Project

This is the final project for my 3rd year (therefore the final project of University). I collaborated with a few different artists as credited above. However, I was responsible for:

Camera work (last 2 shots), matchmove, paint/prep, rotoscoping, lighting, rendering, compositing, grade.

Undiscovered Land

This was a piece created for the rookies brief about creating something "undiscovered". All models and plates for this project was found online (credited above) but I was responsible for:

Matchmove, rotoscoping, lighting, rendering, compositing, grade.

Horizon Zero Dawn Scene

This project was a collaboration between myself and another compositor, however I'm responsible for the shots in the images. We also worked with an animator for this project as credited above. I am responsible for:

First shot: Matchmove, rotoscoping, compositing

Second shot: Matchmove, rotoscoping, keying, part of the compositing

Nike Advert

Camerawork, matchmove, rotoscoping, paint/prep, keying, compositing, grade
