It is with great pleasure that I welcome again Deak Ferrand on The Art of VFX. During his last visit, we had explained the work of Hatch on THE BOOK OF ELI. He has since worked on films like THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE, THE DICTATOR or UPSIDE DOWN.
Deak Ferrand has worked for more than 15 years in visual effects as a matte painter. He was on the team that won an Academy Award for the Best Visual Effects for WHAT DREAMS MAY COMES. He has since founded his own company, Hatch, and has participated in a large number of film projects such as RIDDICK, CONSTANTINE, SHOOTER, THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES, RED CLIFF and WOLVERINE. In the interview which follows, Deak speaks to us about its course and its work on THE BOOK OF ELI.
