The name Annabelle Kent has a come up a few times here on the VFS Blog, for one very simple reason: she works a ton. Her credits as a compositor include everything from The Hunger Games and Prometheus to Sanctuary and Zombieland and her career has taken the Digital Design alum all over the world. She’s currently back in Vancouver, working on 3D Animation & Visual Effects grad Neill Blomkamp‘s much-anticipated Elysium (aka Baja Dunes).
Oomph, the Digital Design community site, caught up with Annabelle this week for an interview about her career and the somewhat unusual path from Digital Design graduate to compositor. Here’s a choice quote about what she loves most about her job:
“I love great/epic shots. I love that the work is always changing. It’s always different. I love being a part of something that takes a lot of people, talent and hard work to accomplish. I think people can take that all for granted, but it’s not easy to make a film. I also love that it allows me to travel.”
