Hi and welcome to my website! My name is Wouter Gilsing. I'm Dutch, 24 years old and a compositor.
I've always been very interested in film. As a kid I always loved watching the DVD extras and around the age of 12 I started fooling around with Photoshop and editing software. I quickly discovered that, although I liked editing, I found myself most of the time experimenting and trying to create effects editing software isn't really made for. So inspired by movies such as Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and Pirates of the Caribbean I made a start with Visual Effects.
At the age of 17 I finished secondary school, gymnasium, and was accepted into the Netherlands Film Academy. At the academy I met a lot of enthusiastic people with the same interests and learned a lot about al the different departments and how they work together.
During the summer breaks I worked at local post production companies in Amsterdam, including STORM and PostPanic. In my third year I arranged an internship at RISE fx in Berlin, where I've worked as a compositor for half a year. I spent most of that time working on my first feature film project, Guy Ritchie's The Man From U.N.C.L.E.. In 2015 I graduated from the Netherlands Film Academy with my thesis film The Space Between Us, for which I was in charge of the compositing supervision.
After graduating I moved to Vancouver where I was employed by Method Studios. I'm currently located in London, working at Framestore.
Besides being creative I really enjoy being the technical guy. I love to solve problems, learn and develop new techniques and to share those with the people around me. The desire to learn new things never stopped and nowadays I still spend a lot of my spare time experimenting. I am an active contributor to the Nuke forums, trying to answer questions whenever I can.
My goal is to work as a compositor on the same kind of blockbuster movies that once triggered me to enter the industry, and I'm willing to work hard and long to fulfill that goal.
I'm specialized in Nuke compositing. Besides that I've got a strong knowledge of Maya.
