Jennifer’s interest in retouching and compositing started in the form of graphic design at a young age and she was fortunate to attend the ArtCenter College of Design high school programs for graphic design. At the time design was still mainly done by x-acto knife and markers. In the early 1990s, however, her college (Pomona College, which is in the Los Angeles, CA area) purchased a couple of copies of Photoshop 2.0 for student use. Despite not having layers available in the software yet, she finished a number of multiple-sourced composites with it. The love affair with computer generated work had begun.
After completing a master’s degree in Visual Communication at Musashino Art University in Tokyo, Japan (thanks to the Japanese Ministry of Arts and Culture for the scholarship and opportunity to study) Jennifer returned to Los Angeles, California to pursue compositing in visual effects for feature films. The thought of not altering just one frame, but many frames, at a time appealed to her.
During that time she has served from being the Technical Assistant to all the artists up to Technical Director of Color, Composite and Lighting for Academy Award winning and nominated visual effects teams.
Joining Spider-Man as Lead Technical Assistant with strengths in all the compositing packages, by Spider-Man 2 she was Lead Pre-Compositing. She calculated lens distortion for all lenses used on Spider-Man 2, retimed and painted 100s of shots, tracked and stabilized the plates, composited split screen shots, color corrected shots involving two different scans and prepared all main actors’ facial capture to be used in the cg creation of the characters.
This was followed by Compositing on Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, Zathura, I Am Legend and Speed Racer. Everything from simple green screen pulls to creating a full movie screen of a grassy field without any footage shot to creating tile worlds with parallax out of a single image was achieved.
Adding to the difficulty of compositing, she joined Superman Returns and Spider-Man 3 as a compositor and lighter. This meant the lighting for the cg in the shots would be set up by her in the 3-D world, then rendered out, then composited to make for seamless effects. The sequences worked on in Superman Returns includes the shuttle disaster (plane plummeting) sequence and the final city destruction sequence. In Spider-Man 3 they included the sewer sequence and the final battle sequence.
Following Speed Racer she decided still photography would grant her ability to spend time fine tuning details in a frame that the time constraints of current visual effects doesn’t have. Thus, Hunt Retouching was created. It gives her the opportunity to choose clients with vision to create amazing images as a team.
Since it’s inception, Hunt Retouching has worked on a number of projects from retouching anything from people to miniatures.
Jennifer Hunt is a Los Angeles Retoucher, an Orange County Retoucher, a California Retoucher, a Professional Retoucher, and works with clients throughout the United States and the world.
