Our new evening Compositing Course Tutor, Hugo Guerra, is certainly no stranger to compositing. He’s been a lead compositor for some of the most renowned companies in London including, Nexus Productions, The Mill, Animech AB, JellyFish Pictures and Atomic Arts.
After finishing his Masters Degree in Visual Arts in Portugal, Hugo worked as a freelance VFX artist for a few years, working in TV, commercials and short films. In 2006 Hugo moved to Sweden to work at Animech AB, first as a compositor then moving on to become their VFX Art Director. It wasn’t until 2008 that Hugo decided to turn his hand to teaching at the IAA Visual Effects University in Ekjo, Sweden, where he taught advanced Nuke compositing before joining Escape Studios in 2010. Hugo now divides his time between The Mill, where he is Joint Head of Nuke, 3D World for whom he creates NUKE tutorials, and Escape Studios where he teaches our Compositing Evening course.
