All you need to know about Compositing at MPC
Compositing is the last stop in the process of VFX creation - they are the ones whose job is to “Make it real“. The team combine all the amazing CG work that comes from Lighting/FX/DMP and the plate photography in such a way that it’s hard to tell what’s shot and what’s not. Sometimes, we don’t even have plate photography but the task is still the same - “Make it real” (or surreal if that's the brief). We like to work in dark and are very sensitive to colours and light!
Applicants to our Compositing need to show their potential for creating photo-realistic images. This can be either all CG, a mix of CG and Live Action or all Live Action. For a demo reel, one or more examples of each would be most helpful. Show a mixture of invisible effects and more noticeable ones.
Make sure all of your elements fit nicely into the perspective of the shot. Keep an eye on the horizon line, two point perspective, parallax, and relative scale.
The Compositing team do some of the most amazing work and - when finished -it’s done and dusted and goes straight to film. We work on some of best VFX titles and believe strongly in our team and enabling work culture. We make sure that right training is given for you to step up and put in your best.
