Jake is Onset Supervisor at Union.
Jake graduated from UAL with a 1st in Animation as well as receiving awards from the Animateka International Animated Film Festival and Monsters of Film.
He was then approached by Marmite to do a stop motion advert which led to a commission by The Royal Society of Science to create a series of animations for their book prize awards which are still in use today.
Jake then embarked upon an MA in VFX Compositing at Escape Studios for which he received a distinction. During his tenure there he was asked to be a studio assistant helping students understand Nuke and providing 121 tutoring.
After graduation, Jake joined Union where he has developed his compositing skills on projects including T2 Trainspotting, Annihilation and The Two Popes.
As our Onset Supervisor, Jake helps plan and facilitate the shooting of visual effects making sure we are as prepared as possible for the work when turnover is received at Union.
