NEW YORK CITY — Crew Cuts (www.crewcuts.com) has promoted Delaney Porter to online finishing artist. A native New Yorker, ‘Del’ was raised in the Carroll Gardens neighborhood in Brooklyn. After graduating from George Washington University, he moved back to New York and joined the Crew Cuts family as an office production assistant. Porter quickly moved to an assistant editor role and soon thereafter discovered a passion for compositing, online editing and finishing.
“Compositing can feel like solving a puzzle,” he says. “There are multiple solutions to any given problem, and finding the most efficient approach is surprisingly rewarding.”
Some of his recent work includes a project for the New Jersey Lottery.
“The NJ Lotto job required a variety of different techniques,” he notes. “By combining cleanup, color, 3D elements and particle simulations, we turned an outdoor plate, shot in summer, into a winter/holiday scene. This project was particularly fun.”
