We are the VFX Crew of the TV show Supernatural. AMA!
Hello Reddit, we are the Supernatural VFX Crew. We've been working on the show since season 12. We have gathered today and we're very happy to answer your questions, as much as we can, about Compositing, FX, 3D, workflows and the show itself.
!!! - Just as an important note, we will answer questions about the show as best we can but we cannot discuss any spoilers or anything in upcoming episodes.
We’ll be answering questions for about an hour or two and then we’ll slow down a bit, but we’ll keep answering and try to get as much of the questions as we can.
u/Petar_BG - Hi everyone, I’ve been a Compositor for 4 years now. I’ve worked on TV and freelance work. I’ve dabbled quite a bit in the 3D world as well and am currently expanding my knowledge in the coding scene of compositing. I love to build tools for Nuke and just be as artistically creative as I can be. I hope I can give everyone some useful information today. To view my work and download some of the tools I’ve made, here is my website: https://www.petartsonev.com/
u/AnsleyCG - Hey folks! I’m a 3D Generalist with a focus on Modelling and Texturing. I’ve worked in games and animation and live action television for 5 years. I drink a pot of coffee every day and I’m learning to speak Portuguese. I’ll do my best to answer any questions you have about the 3D pipeline and any software like Maya, Zbrush, Mari, Photoshop, V-Ray or Arnold.
