Alumnus Update: Hannes Sap has been working at Double Negative (London) for over two years. First as a Assistant Colourist, then as Roto and Prep Artist.
He is currently working on the new DC Comics blockbuster Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot. Release is set for the summer of 2017. As a Prep Artist Hannes was responsible for cleaning up the mistakes that are made on set. If an actor is floating around with cables, then those cables have to be removed, frame by frame. If markers have been used on green screens then those have to be removed as well.
When wanting to become a Compositor in the film industry, those are the essential skills one has to master first.
When his work on Wonder Women is done, Hannes will move on the new Pacific Rim Maelstrom film, starring Scott Eastwood (son of Clint) and John Boyega (Star Wars The Force Awakens). We are looking forward to that!
