Jedi Academy Graduate Program

3 of my Students got selected for the Jedi Academy Graduate Program in July! They have since completed the program and Javier and Pamela got hired as compositors at ILM! How Freaking AWESOME is that! Nilson is on a break and most likely will be joining them in January.

After accomplishing all my goals for Lost Boys, I made a new 5 year goal earlier this year. To train one student so well that they can work at ILM as compositor right out of school. I guess I am going to have to set a new goal now.

Usually It took an artist 5 years working in the industry before they are even considered. And now I have 3 that got hired at ILM almost right out of my program.

Fun Fact! In total 5% of all the students I have thought are working at ILM at the moment!

Graduation – LBS-026 & FXTD-013

Music : Of Monsters And Men – Yellow Light (Cillo Remix)

A rare moment in Lost Boys history, where I managed to get a one of my students, Tiago, to help me shoot the entire graduation ceremony of my compers (LBS-026) and FXTDs (FXTD-013).

Now you know how much we at Lost Boys look forward to this day with every class.

Digital Gore – Behind the Scenes

A behind the scenes look at our Digital Gore Project at Lost Boys.

In this project, students are going to animate, shade, light, render and composite a CG sword stabbing our puffer fish friend.

Where Should You Go to Study Compositing?

Go to Lost Boys. There I’ve said it and I wholeheartedly stand by this.

You are free to look around, but I doubt you will find a better or more intense program out there. I was the first and I am the best at what I do. I have made bartenders, lawyers, dentist, Uniqlo sales people, military personals, etc into compositors.

Need Proof, check this out.

You could work in the Visual Effects industry a year from now or spend the next year trying to do hundreds of crappy online tutorials and wonder why no one wants to hire you.

And good luck trying to find a school that will give a damn after you graduate. Let alone, teach you how to manage your shots, ace interviews, negotiate salary, and know about job openings before they become public knowledge.
