I'm Rob Field, a professional visual effects artist living and working in Utah, although my clients are located around the world.
Thanks to successful projects I've been able to maintain long-term relationships with my clients - they come back for future work, and they recommend me to their colleagues.
I have a BFA in Animation and almost 15 years of work in the film and visual effects industry.
Some of my work includes a short film selected for the Sundance Film Festival, nearly 80 indie films, and television work for ABC, ABC Family, SyFy, the Discovery Channel, Lifetime, BYU TV, and the History Channel.
General 3D work including modeling, animation and dynamic simulations in Autodesk Maya and SideFX Houdini. Lighting and rendering in Octane and V-Ray. Texturing in 3D-Coat and Substance Painter.
I can track your camera, no questions asked. Years of experience using Syntheyes for complex matchmoving and Mocha Pro for planar tracking to make sure that technical limitations never compromise a shot.
Tried and tested experience with projects involving hundreds of shots, difficult greenscreens, in-composite 3D elements, 2.5D matte paintings. Compositing experience in Fusion and Nuke.
Scripting and programming experience in Python and C# means that I have developed a robust pipeline that's capable of handling large volumes of shots in a reliable, error-free, fast environment.
I simulated the ship's motion and the water in Houdini, then rendered in Mantra and Octane. I then composited the shot in Fusion.
I tracked the shot in Syntheyes, simulated the bridge explosion in Pixelux DMM, then added the smoke as a Phoenix FD sim. I rendered it all from VRay 3.0 and composited in Fusion.
I transferred the model and animation from Maya to Houdini via Alembic. I then did the pyro sim in Houdini and rendered in Octane. I comped the final shot in Fusion.
I love talking film, so feel free to visit during normal business hours. Contact me to schedule a time to discuss your project in person.
