I build virtual scenes by bringing together performance capture, environments, lighting, etc. so that they can be used on stage when shooting cameras.
What's challenging about your job?
Staying true to our captured reference while also working to enhance the intention of the scene with extra animation and visual effects.
What's surprising about your job?
How hands on we are with stage and other departments. We actively update elements in our scenes as stage shoots cameras on them to get the best moments/performances for the shot.
Best advice received in the film industry?
To be kind and stay curious! Use the resources you have and reference other artists' work around you to grow your own methods and improve your skills.
