Hello! I think VFX is a little slice of computer magic and I love it! Always super excited to learn new things and constantly mind blown by just about everything. Since being a VFX Trainee on Star Wars 'The Rise of Skywalker' I have decided to follow a path in to VFX Production.
In my role at Framestore my responsibilities included organising training sessions, taking notes in meetings, setting up remote training, managing calendars as well as making sure video resources were transferred, and organised. I also got my hands dirty and did heavy lifting when cleaning, helping run sculpture class and life drawing. It was a lot of running around and I loved the responsibility.
On my apprenticeship I have refined my ability to Tech Check work for other artists. This involved frame by frame checking grain and ensuring shots are to a high technical standards. I now carry out Roto/Prep tasks in the TV department :)
Through the British Film Institutes amazing trainee scheme I was lucky enough to work on Starwars ' The Rise Of Skywalker'. My responcabilities included: On-set helping wranglers by running witness cameras and placing markers. office tasks such as helping update databases, shot descriptions and thumbnails . I also make great tea and coffee!! I was lucky enough to be welcome to explore other areas of VFX on this traineeship. I got to help out with Lidar, learn about photogametry, help out the Virtual Production team and I had a morning learning about the previs pipeline! I cant emphasise enough that I love learning!
I spent a week creating an animation called 'Rest In Pizza' with a super talented group made up of other young people interested in Stop Motion.
I completed this qualification as part of the BFI regional program. The course had a focus on Visual Effects and was a gateway to the opportunities which later opened up!
In my studies I aimed to have a strong focus on Stop Motion and Visual Effects. I completed my course slightly early to begin a traineeship through the BFI. The college was amazing! I achieved a top grade of Triple Distinction Star! (D*D*D*)
