A new interview Posted by VinceFX in Matte Painter at the Art of vfx blog

THE BOOK OF ELI: Deak Ferrand – Visual Effects Designer / Matte Painter – Hatch

Deak Ferrand has worked for more than 15 years in visual effects as a matte painter. He was on the team that won an Academy Award for the Best Visual Effects for WHAT DREAMS MAY COMES. He has since founded his own company, Hatch, and has participated in a large number of film projects such as RIDDICK, CONSTANTINE, SHOOTER, THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES, RED CLIFF and WOLVERINE.

What is your life path?
I left Switzerland to go to Montreal where I had heard that there was a 3D school, NAD Center, teaching Softimage. I attended night school there. After about 6 months the people from Buzz Effects Montreal came to teach us what they do. Each of us had to make an animation for our demo reel at the end of the year. When I met Rick Ostiguy from Buzz, he saw what I was working on and really liked what I was doing. He soon asked me to come to Buzz. They initially hired me for two weeks to work on one commercial and afterwards they asked me to stay. I accepted and it is there that I learnt everything about post production.
