My goals are to become a Senior Compositor and to master my craft so I can create beautiful images that people won't soon forget.

I first wanted to start working in this industry when I saw the 1950 French fantasy film Orphée five years ago. The film is a contemporary retelling of the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus, and it involves a famous poet falling in love with Death who is played by María Casares. The film uses simple special effects to create amazing worlds and mystical events. When I saw this film I knew I had to work in this industry so I would be able to create the miraculous things I saw in this film.
