About me

I’ve been identifying myself as a digital Compositor since I started working in 2008.

Even though I had always be fascinated by digital arts and computer generated images, only recently did I discover that my passion was anchored much deeper.
Past the amazement of bringing dreams and ideas to the screen, I found myself craving for a more extensive knowledge and understanding of the process.
How does my monitor display an image? How did we bring fictional characters to life before computers? How does a light ray bounce and scatter on a person’s face before reaching a Camera? What algorithm is the computer applying on my images when I play with them? What the hell is going on in the director’s head?
So many questions I’ve had to answer by researching online, asking experienced artists or investigating myself, and so many questions I haven’t found answers for yet.

Over the years, working with Junior Artists tuned out to be just as enriching as working with Veterans. While the second may be able to answer my questions, nobody could match the ability of a beginner to ask new ones. Some questions might be easy to answer, some may sound plain silly, others could be very complex, but every one of them made me realize that in order to be answered and explained to them, I had to fully understand the problem myself first.

This thirst for new problems pushed me to be on the move, always trying to face new challenges. Experiencing a great variety of projects, in different environments keeps me interested.
I also recently started offering training services in addition to my compositing skills, and hope I’ll be able to give back to the VFX community as much as they gave me.

Erwan is a really good compositor with a deep knowledge of VFX. He has really strong technical side. I really enjoyed working with him at Hydraulx.
Nicolas Cadorette Vigneau, 2D Supervisor, Hydraulx
Erwan stepped in to manage remotely 3 artists around the world to complete a fully animated sequence for a show, timed for music and lighting cues. The show must go on, but ours wouldn’t have without him.
Kevin Matthew Reyes, Director and Actor
Erwan is one of the most talented and technically capable artists I have had the pleasure of working with over the years.
He understands the software on a very fundamental level.
He was able to very quickly understand the look a client was pushing for and then efficiently streamline that look by creating procedural tools that would be used later for quick changes and fast shot turn around.
Furthermore, Erwan has a natural curiosity and is extremely helpful and collaborative in the studio.
