    Hitesh Patel, Visual Effects Supervisor (The Mill)

    In the last 2 years, i've had the pleasure of being in Uruguay on 3 occasions filming in and around Montevideo. On two of those occasions i was fortunate enough to work with Rodrigo and Leandro in their DIT roles. Their aptitude and professionalism was amazing and they performed their roles above and beyond what was required but that ended up being a bonus. Creating looks on the fly assured all members of the international parties what could be achieved later. Beyond their technical roles, they were just very nice people to work with.

    Rodrigo Gómez

    About Rodrigo Gómez

    Rodrigo has worked in different aspects of film since 2000. His duties have been as an editor, professor at ORT University, and on set as part of the camera crew. Other than his experience and knowledge in the film industry, he’s found his unfinished computer engineering degree quite useful (geek warning), especially since cinema has gone digital. He grew up in Sweden, and lived in the USA for a couple years, which has given him an edge as a professional, not only language wise.
