Bell is the founder of Handmade Digital. His credits include
many Hollywood feature films. Recently he edited and composited visual
effects shots for films such as "The Comebacks"- Fox Atomic, "Hoot"- Walden Media, "Little Manhattan"- New Regency Entertainment,"Miracle" - Walt Disney Studios, "Alex
and Emma" - Warner Bro's, and others.
Alan founded Handmade Digital upon the principle that it's better to
have a few really good artists working on desktop software than one person
sitting in front of an expensive hardware based system. Todays desktop
software tools are perfectly suited to do visual effects work and these
systems can be set up anywhere.
"We believe that visual effects must integrate seamlessly into the movie.
It doesn't matter whether you are making a movie of the week or a feature
film, every shot is just as important as the last. To support this
we stand ready to put together a dedicated team of artists to meet
the demands of your show. After all, it's the people
who make the difference."
Some of our favorite freelance compositors include:
