I work mostly in shot finaling, which includes the lighting, effects, and stereoscopic (3D) departments.


Tangled (2010)

Lighting and compositing. Brought shots through 2k rendering and stereoscopic compositing. Wrote tools, plugins, and scripts to streamline workflow for the show.

Most of my shot-work was done in the beautiful lantern sequence.



Prep and Landing: Naughty vs Nice (2011)

Pipeline data management between lighting and effects. Created publish process and maya plugins to make sim data seamless between departments.



Lion King 3D (2011)

Stereoscopic compositing and support. Built shots from legacy compositing software to Shake through scripts. Created depth maps in the original artwork layers to final shot.
