Shapeshifter

VFX + Compositing, Charlex

Shapeshifter

Charlex, Lead Flame Artist

2010

It’s rare for a vfx company to have an in-house project of this magnitude, but from my previous experience working with Alex Weil on One Rat Short I knew that the commitment from Charlex would be extraordinary.

I was lucky to work with many incredible artists and producers on this and other projects at Charlex. Working with the team there to bring this project to life in such a free-flowing, collaborative process was an incredibly rewarding experience.

 

An attempt to answer "so what did you do on Shapeshifter?"

The before element shows a precomp of the elements from CG. Any enhancements I brought to the project were built on an incredibly strong foundation of vivid art direction and amazing CG.

Of note, there were a handful of shots I did not composite -- those were composited by the very talented Blake Huber. I have marked those shots with a small green triangle in the bottom left.
