Ged Vernardakis

Visual Merchandiser


I have a keen interest in Cinematography, Photography and Story telling. Although much of my background has been focused on creature animation for over 10 years. I have always maintained a high level of skill in other areas of VFX. Currently finished production work on the Fury Road, Mad Max at Method / iloura Sydney as a Roto artist, I am currently ready to take on longer term opportunities.

I'm seeking a position to continue to develop long term relationships to enhance my skills and to gain more experience.

I have experience in consulting appropriately with supervisors on creative shots. Accepting criticism in a productive environment is a way of life, as I strive to better myself professionally.

My friendly nature creates a professional atmosphere around me. My previous work includes IT Efpos installations, Retail client customer service, Marketing Sales, Rotoscoping hold out mattes for compositors, and Animation camera placement, Character animation, Previz Layout Artist, Model sculpturing,  Lighting and the occasional cinematographer when required.
