With my training and experience, I hope to work at a world-class studio as a full-time Compositor. This is my compositing reel I am submitting to Rookies Award 2021. It demonstrates my skills as Compositor with selection of personal projects referencing movie shots.

Invisible Effect Project - The Walking Dead

I removed Glenn from The Walking Dead TV series and replaced him with myself! This involved a lot of layers to make it look realistic including a well shot Green-Screen plate. 

Gladiator - Paint Out Gas Canister

You may have noticed that some crew or equipment were visible watching the iconic movie Gladiator. Nowadays, we are able to fix errors in movies with visual effects. I took time to remove the gas canister, cable, switch and ramp from the movie Gladiator which can help keep audience more immersive. 

Harrison Ford De-Aging

De-aging is a visual effects technique used to make actors look younger. It’s relatively a new form of utilizing visual effects to help storytelling or solve problems in a film or TV series. Below, I put into practice this technique by de-aging Harrison Ford in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Spider-Man Far From Home Wire Removal and BG Paint

As a huge fan of marvel movies, I love watching Behind the Scenes footage. In the footages, I am able to find some shots that I can challenge myself to complete. This one from Spider-Man Far From Home was one of the shots I enjoyed a lot but found to be quite difficult. 

Ghost Pirate

There is a lot of layers being used in this project. Inspired from Pirates of the Carribean, I created a scary pirate ghost walking towards a lone British traveler. This project involved keying and despill, color correction, 2D element integration, roto, and camera shake. 


Below, I have grabbed a selection of shots from my demo reel that I believe display my wide range of skills as a Compositor.
