ExperienceSteve's twenty years of production experience plus his deep technical understanding of the art and science of Digital Compositing combine with his excellent verbal and written communication skills to make him an outstanding visual effects facility training instructor. He has conducted training for Kodak's Cinesite digital effects facility in Hollywood for 8 years, the PixelCorps in San Francisco, Rainmaker in Vancouver B.C., Kodak's film engineering department in Rochester, New York, CMG in Macedonia, Prague's UPP in the Czech Republic, Tata and Crest Animation in India, Ubisoft's Montreal facility and New Deal Studios in Los Angeles, Disney Feature Animation and DisneyToons in Los Angeles as well as Pixar.

While his extensive production experience has given him a deep understanding of the entire production pipeline from creative inception to the final deliverable formats of film and video, his specialty is the techniques for compositing with log images (Cineon and DPX) for feature films.
