Deadpool Movie Poster

Deadpool was my first project at Digital Domain. When I joined the show it was already in full swing and only had a couple of months left to go. But we still had a lot to do in those few months.

This was one of the shots that I worked on for the movie, and it became one of the frames that was used in all of the marketing and press about the movie. It was great seeing it show up everywhere.

It was a crazy show, with lots of overtime. But I didn’t mind too much, it was pretty fun work, and I bought an apartment during the project, so the overtime was very helpful.

I didn’t know anything about the character of Deadpool before the project, and I wasn’t sure about Ryan Reynolds at the time either. But in my first few days of the project I watched one of our sequences without audio, my headphones weren’t working, and it still made me laugh, so I knew it had something going for it.

It was really satisfying to see how popular the movie was. The work we did wasn’t anything groundbreaking, but it’s definitely one of the best movies I’ve worked on.
