ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS - The road trip - Senior Compositing


Weta Digital, New Zealand

These shots were made using Nuke.

This was my first all 3D animation show, a great experience.

Wonderful team of supervisors and good fun.

It was the first show we were using new tools, using automated templates created by the supervisors for the compositors to use.

We were given initial guidelines for particular recurring shots.

Initially we all thought it would stop us from being creative, but soon proved we had to step out of the template and comp as usual.

Complex Multi layer 3d elements, Lots of 2d warping, 3d clean up using coordinates and vectors, 3d particles, some complex tracking shots, set extensions, matte paintings, atmospheric effects, 2d effects, practical effects and lots more.
