Junior Digital Compositor and VFX Artist
Hi and Welcome to my Website and Blog. I am Gavin Whittaker and this is my journey from Novice to becoming a Professional Compositing Artist.
I am a somewhat "mature" student of the art (now either approaching or into 40th level *depending on when you read this* ). I am a proud Dad, total geek and 80's nostalgia nerd.
at the beginning of 2020, I decided to change careers after almost 20 years from I.T Project Manager to pursue my lifelong dream of becoming a professional artist, working in entertainment industry.
My hope and aim is that I can share my journey, the things that I learn and some of the things that I find interesting with you.
Big disclaimer: The information and resources on this site are nothing more than my take on the things that I learn, information that I have found useful and perhaps some things that I have "noodled" with. I do not pretend to be an authority when it comes to compositing or VFX - I'm learning and sharing what I learn as I learn it.. Sometimes the best way to get better at something is to study and progress together :)
Hopefully; on this website, you will find useful information, some nice tutorials either created by me from the point of view of a student or links to tutorials that i have found useful and informative. I hope to be able to share useful and informative articles, tools, widgets gizmos and all sorts of shiny sprockets that can make life as an amateur or professional Pixel Wizard and Node Noodler that little bit better. :D
