Technical Director and Visual FX Artist for a range of commercials at Mike Reed Post Production, Melbourne. Roles ranged from basic brand concept to end-to-end 3D and compositing pipelines. I have also worked at Nextgen Reality, Nextgen Studios, Photon VFX, as well as quite a lot of subcontracting.

REALTIME TOOLS

From 2015 I worked on tools to simplify traditional & digital film making, utilising networked mobile devices to track cameras in virtualised sets with AR camera solves, allowing rapid prototyping of shots inside Unity and adjusting lighting, lenses and depth of field. Motion data could be exported for use in any 3D package.

Independent Film

In 2012 I worked on a web series called The Silent City. I served as Visual FX Supervisor and handled some stablisation, rig removal, matte painting (destroyed cities, etc) and weapon effects. Along the way I worked with Director Rubidium Wu, who I was fortunate enough to work with in 2007 for Amnesty International.

Here’s the trailer! The entire series can be seen on their Youtube Channel.
