Rethinking Compositing

Drawing from extensive experience across projects like Civil War and the Fantastic Beasts franchise, Comp Supervisor Chris Zeh explains how by deconstructing, rethinking and rebuilding the comp process artists can streamline their approach for a more headache-free approach to their craft.

Rather than rely on proprietary tech or software, this talk promises practical advice and tips that artists can apply themselves - all drawn from on-set experience across major projects.

Chris is an industry veteran with a career spanning over 17 years. He joined Framestore in 2005 as a compositor for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, following stints at Cinesite, MPC and Weta. His wealth of experience has led to credits on VFX-driven movies including Die Another Day, Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, Gravity, The Dark Knight and Steven Spielberg's War Horse, which saw him nominated for a VES award. Recent years have seen him return to the Wizarding World for the third Fantastic Beasts instalment, and serve as on-set Supervisor for Alex Garland’s explosive Civil War.

With a hands-on attitude, Chris leads a team of inspirational talent to achieve beautiful and innovative imagery; a combination of his intricate technical knowledge and creative eye.
