I've worked with many many compositors over the years but few are as genuinely talented as Vincent. He has an excellent balance of creative and technical compositing skills. There is little he doesn't know about Nukes capabilities and tool sets however he is also a gifted artist capable of first class look development. He understands what makes a good composition, he understands how cameras work and how to get that "photographic" feel... but, most importantly, he understands how to get shots finaled.
These are outstanding attributes for a compositor but Vincent offers more. He is a talented leader of men. He knows how to talk to people, how to motivate them and how to manage their moods, concerns and stress levels. He is always eager to help and is an excellent and diligent teacher.
Vincents only achilles heel is that sometimes he cares too much and should learn to let go.... but if managing perfectionism is the hardest part of working with an artist then I'll take it every time.
I can count the number of artists who are as talented as Vincent on one hand.... and I've worked with hundreds.
