ILM

I’m excited to say I am now working for ILM! I’ve dreamed of working for them since I was 15 and am very grateful for the opportunity to get to work with some of the best VFX artists in the world on some upcoming blockbusters.

Unfortunately, balancing a new work load while working on my personal film will slow things down, and the expected completion date will be pushed back to next year. I will still continue to post updates as I get a little farther along.

Basic Grading & FX

In order to get the cold, hazy, winter look I envisioned, this is the basic process these shots go through.

  • Above we have our original plate that was shot on Red Epic.
  • The FG elements are then roto’d, which allows us to create a black and white matte.
  • The matte is used to place objects behind it such as a smoke plume.
  • Additional snow particles and muzzle flashes are added.
  • The final grade is applied to the entire comp.
  • Lastly, the shot is rendered out, which is essentially exporting it into one complete file.

Then, repeat for the next 100 shots….
