My name is Jake, and I'm very excited to join this community with you all. I grew up in Michigan and have worked in Los Angeles for almost ten years as an editor and digital artist. After watching all the breakdowns included with the Blu-ray, Cloverfield was the movie that interested me in VFX after finishing college/university. As an AE user initially, I've forced myself not to use it for the past three years as I continue to learn more about node-based compositing. I can't wait to grow (and level up) alongside one another. What made you interested in VFX? Thank you!
