The Masters of Compositing Series – Part 2: Paul Vlahos


This is the second installment in a series of interviews with the pioneers and masters in the compositing/VFX film & television industry. I originally recorded these interviews for my published book “The Green Screen Handbook” (Sybex/Wiley, pub) and had intended to produce one full-length documentary from the materials. But after a couple of years past now, I thought they would be better served as individual parts of a series to help educate and inform people about these historic times from the early days of VFX compositing through modern-day techniques.

The Masters of Compositing Series – Part 2: Paul Vlahos
Co-founder of Ultimatte and developer of modern compositing technologies.

I was fortunate to sit and interview both Petro & Paul Vlahos (Father & Son) on the same day while they also shared some of the new technology they were developing for iMatte. I’ve been working with Ultimatte in their software development primarily, since the early 90’s and am always inspired when I get a chance to visit and see what’s new in development.

I hope you are as inspired watching this interview and learning about some of the history of the technology we now take for granted in our everyday production workflow!
