Behnam Shafiebeik has been working as a VFX artist in the feature film industry for over 12 years. From a young age, Behnam always found himself wanting to know more about how filmmakers created never-before-seen worlds and creatures. It wasn’t until witnessing the lifelike dinosaurs in Jurassic Park when Behnam knew he wanted to be a part of the movie magic. Behnam got his start in the first ever Compositing Apprentice Program at Rhythm & Hues Studios; he was offered his first contract on Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties. After having worked on almost a dozen films at R&H — including The Golden Compass; Behnam has also worked at Rising Sun Pictures in Australia where he worked on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows. He then found himself in New Zealand working on Rise of the Planet of the Apes at Weta Digital. Behnam moved back to his hometown of San Francisco to work at Industrial Light & Magic, where he is currently working on several films; including some based in a galaxy far, far away. Some of his favorite projects he has worked on at ILM are Captain America: Civil War, Ant-Man, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Kong: Skull Island, and most recently completed work on Solo: A Star Wars Story.

The course left me with an overall impression of how Nuke thinks and how to keep it happy. I've already seen great improvements in my own projects because of Nuke and Nick's course.
Nick did a great job of breaking down these subjects into very clear and understandable examples. The presentations were easy to follow and, as a result, I had the time and motivation to go a little bit beyond the lesson and experiment with all of the various nodes and techniques.
He did a great job, he always answered forum questions quickly and provided feedback on time. The lessons were all very clear and covered a good range of useful and industry relevant topics.
Very happy with this course it was exactly what I was looking for to get me jump started in nuke
My instructor was very detailed when explaining the functions and steps to complete the desired task. He didn't just give the techinical reasons but shared his expierence from an artistic point of view. His personality and approach to handling students is friendly and met with enthusiasm. Assets of a great teacher.
