Sixty Seconds with Featured Artist: Compositor Tara Roseblade

Sixty Seconds with Featured Artist: Compositor Tara Roseblade

The compositing industry is booming right now which is why we were grateful to Tara for taking a couple of minutes out of her busy day to answer a few questions about what it’s like working in the industry since leaving Escape Studios. Tara’s reel shows everything that a good junior compositing showreel should. It includes examples of roto, rig/wire removal, colour correction and some good CG comping.  Each shot is accompanied by a detailed breakdown - which is a great way of demonstrating these skills.

Destination; Escape Studios

After working for 7 years as a DVD Technology Developer and Producer I felt it was time to make a change in my life and chase an idea which had been in the back of my head for sometime, to work on blockbuster movies. After many international phone calls and many, many hours of reseach I decided to leave a very well paid job back in Australia and booked a plane ticket to London, Destination; Escape Studios.
