Giacomo Verri

Post-production Technician

Giacomo's job title is 2D Compositor at The Mill

What I do

I integrate Computer Generated (CG) assets, which are pieces of live action footage, into footage which has already been shot, making sure it looks seamless and realistic.

What my role entails

How I became a technician

My advice to others

If you have an interest, pursue it! Kick yourself into gear and pursue it as a career. Go to events and put yourself out there.

A little more about
my everyday role

My favourite piece of equipment

We use a keyboard and a Wacom tablet, and we use a pen rather than a mouse. We often need to remove things or physically paint something, for example removing a logo and painting in brickwork over it, and these make it much easier to do.

The way I work

I work from 9:00 to 6:00 with an hour’s lunch, now that hybrid working is more prominent, we have core hours of 11:00 to 4:00 and around that it’s pretty flexible.

I sometimes have the opportunity to go on set, which is very busy, it’s not my cup of tea, but a lot of people love it and prefer that!

The next steps in my career journey

I’d like to become a Creative Director and also travel. The Mill has just opened a studio in Korea - for me that’s a bit too far away but there may be other opportunities to travel in the future.
