CG Today : Can you tell us more about your work at Reliance media Works? Tarun Gupta – VFX / Stereoscopic Compositor

Tarun : I am a part of Stereoscopic division of Reliance Media works, I worked as a 2D Paint Artist, my work revolves around creating Single/ Dynamic clean plates for solving an artifact called Pixel Repeat. This is created while working on Stereo Lefts Rights Depth Comp. Along with it I had worked there on several VFX Projects also.

CG Today : You are adept at using several kinds of film-making software. What are your favorite effects or compositing tools?

Tarun : My Favorite Tool is NUKE, it is a high-end compositing platform and best in the market.

CG Today : In the filmmaking arena, work is fast-paced and deadlines are always looming. How do you keep up with the latest trends in your field of work?

Tarun :
Very true. See our field is more or less a technology dependent and technology is changing every day. So to be in market you have to update yourself at the same pace.



CG Today : On the blog, VFX Hack, the writer said, "Today's digital artists tend to be woefully under-educated in art and film history and spend way too much time replicating what they see on CG movies and Forums and not spending any time analyzing what makes a great work of art great". What are your thoughts on this statement?

Tarun : Sad but true. Artist is a person who shows the world his ideas, his vision through his creativity, be it a painter, sculptor or a digital artist. The biggest challenge is to make yourself technically sound along with your creative sense, create a masterpiece which the world can remember for long.
