My name is Joshua Michael Northeast (But I prefer Josh), I am 18 years old and I live in Eungella, just outside Murwillumbah, Northern NSW. I have a mum, dad and 3 younger sisters.
My future Career
I'm wanting to be a Visual Effects artist at an Australian Visual Effects company. At this point, my passion and perfectionism is in the area of Compositing. But this is most likely going to change when I further discover other areas of Visual Effects and Motion Graphics.
I started off as a film maker, making little movies with my sisters. Doing this, I discovered the technique of Chroma-Keying (Green/Blue Screen). And from there, I delved into the beautiful and creative world of Visual Effects, learning and inventing techniques as required.
By being a visual effects artist and a film maker, I was then able to take a step back and discover the easier world of photography and Photoshop. I already knew the techniques, all I had to do was apply that knowledge to just one frame instead of hundreds!
I currently work at the High School I graduated from in 2016 as a teachers aide, helping out in Multimedia and Technology classes, as well as tutoring kids in computer skills in the learning support department.
My skills include, but are not limited to:
Visual Effects, Motion Graphics, Film Making, Graphic Design, Video Editing, Photography, Presentations, Web Design. 2D/3D Animation, 3D Modeling, 3D Simulations, 2D/3D Motion Tracking, Compositing, Green/Blue Screen, Rotoscoping, Matte Painting and Camera Mapping.
The software I use includes, but is not limited to:
After Effects, 3DS Max, Realflow, Nuke, Photoshop, Lightroom, Blender 3D, Mocha Pro, Boujou, PFTrack, SynthEyes, Encore, Premier Pro, Muse, Dreamweaver, Sony Vegas, Muse, Flash Catalyst, Mixcraft, Audacity, Audition, Visionlab Studio and Powerpoint.
