Why I'm Not A Visual Effects Supervisor
More than just about any type of special effect, I love the fine art of compositing; it's just exciting to me, and I keep trying to get better at it. My personal benchmark so far is a shot I created for Ciao. I whipped it up a whim during some downtime on the set last fall and showed it around; no one believed that it was actually an FX shot, which was grounds enough to include it in the final cut. Hooray for me! But yesterday, I stopped by the coloring suite where the finishing touches were being placed on a few shots - including my little baby - and discovered with horror that, for about four frames, the lead actor was tragically vivisected by one of my travelling mattes. It was mortifying.
And so the original cut gets cracked open yet again...
