Miguel Torija

I am a passionate VFX artist who loves cinema.

​​

I was born in Madrid, Spain, I'm 27 years old (The thirties are coming so fast...). I grew up with big blockbusters such as Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Jurassic Park, loving how films can make people travel all around the universe and forgot any worries for a bit... And I wanted to help to do that! 

I'm a Compositor

In order to do that, after finishing my degree, I started studying postproduction, focusing my time in Nuke and most important, learning how to be a good compositor.

 

Now, with almost 3 years of experience, I've had the opportunity of working on a lot of different kind of projects, from TV series, animation movies as "Klaus" and intense action films as "Love and Monsters" that have tested my knowledge and helped to grow as a compositor in many different ways.

am I a Lighter?

Well, to be honest, not yet. But yes! I am studying and practising in my free time to be able to work as a lighter on a real production one day, stay tuned!

And just a bit more about me!

Okay, okay, I'm way more than that. I love any kind of films, board games (Terraforming Mars, Zombicide and Catan are my favourites!), video games (and if I have to choose one, I will go with Final Fantasy 7 or Metal Gear), I like any kind of music, it depends on the day! 

I also love to tell stories, and that's why during my degree I join several scripting and creative writing courses, I used to write short stories with a couple of friends, but sadly now I don't have much time to do that...

And just to finish, I love to study and learn new things, and that's why every day I try to learn something new, trying to improve my artistic and technical skills!
