A Nightmare On Elm Street

Talk about dreams come true! As a lifelong fan of the series, my first feature film gig was Platinum Dune's reboot of A Nightmare On Elm Street, Directed by Samuel Bayer. In this production, I was met with the challenge of seamlessly connecting our CG enhanced freddy head to the real, photographed prosthetic. This meant tracking cameras, tracking facial geometry, and hand animating exposed flesh. I also had the opportunity to join my vfx supervisors on set to help capture HDRI and chrome spheres.
