While Compositing is the ultimate goal for any 2D artist, the truth is roto is still the best and most reliable way to get in the industry, since the big companies will only hire compositors with a certain experience. Now the deal is, you either fake it until you make it and survive the tough work or you master the role, get respected and enjoy the ride while carving your way into compositing. In the modern days, everybody says they can roto, which is perfectly fine, but being a Roto Artist, to create art doing it, is something only a few can claim and have the honour to represent.



Being able to fully understand everything involved in rotoing the hardest shots, full bodies, high motion blurs and moving cloth, and still solve this puzzle within an acceptable time and to the highest quality is only achievable if you absolutely dominate the concepts and practice to exhaustion. That’s exactly our goal by launching this masterclass, to take you to the next step and give you a highly detailed insight of the real world, photography concepts and industry experience, to multiply your chances of getting hired straight away and progress faster in your career.
