Hi, my name is Felipe Olid Guerrero.

I am a recent graduate of the National Film and Television School (NFTS) Digital Effects M.A. (London)

In my first year at the NFTS I learned the basics of CGI, Compositing and Grading to then speacialice in Compositing in my second year.
I have been supervising and compositing visual effects for fiction and animation NFTS productions for the last year.

As a digital compositor, I have been working mainly with Nuke for the last two years. But I am also knowledgeable with techniques like Roto/Prep, Keying, CGI integration with Vray, Deep Compositing and Stereo Compositing.

Thanks for watching, Enjoy!
