BIRDS OF PARADISE | ADTL (PRODUCTION) VFX SUPERVISOR        ︎


Hired by Amazon Studios in post production and working in conjunction with the production’s VFX Producer Rene Sekula, I primarily helped creatively guide and oversee a psychedelic sequence combining custom effects and DeepDream A.I. for director Sarah Adina Smith. The VFX work was realized by Goodbye Kansas, led by GK’s VFX Supervisor Jason M. Halverson and VFX Producer Paula Pope. Responsibilities were further expanded to include art direction for digital matte painted set extensions transforming Budapest into an idealized Paris and other creative vfx shots, ultimately overseeing and consulting on over sixty shots.

Appended is an  initial creative psychedelic treatment  along with very rough mockup art transforming Budapest’s Academy of Science into Palais Garnier  and extending the Ballet School.
