Video Compositing

I was a video editor for 12 years. The thing I loved to do more than anything else was composites. When I did them, I had to do a lot of the work by hand, with 4 video decks running a complicated setup on the switcher, a synchronized effects box and then maybe even more layers on top.. it was incredibly complex work and I loved every second of it. Now a days it's a lot easier with computers and compositing tools.. This demo reel from R!OT Manhattan (a post house specializing in tv spots) shows you the amazing stuff they are doing these days and exposed some of the secrets that you as a regular viewer never even imagined...
