POSITION: Visual Effects Supervisor & VFX Art Director

As visual effects art Director and Lead, I designed and created full-CG characters and developed and supervised the whole Motion Capture workflow and shooting to bring the digital androids to life. Integrated in lifeaction footage exclusively filmed in 3D (stereoscopic) for the project, the illusion of believable humanlike robots was created. My work on “Robots” included modelling, texturing, rigging, animation, matchmoving, rendering and basically every single aspect of visual effects creation.

Concept Art & Illustration
Originally working as an Illustrator, drawing and painting are still essential skills for my craft as a visual effects artist and are my favorite techniques for personal work. I strongly believe that modern technology can only be used artistically with an art related background and an solid understanding of traditional techniques and design principles. To keep my artistic skills trained, I’m working regularly on concept art and illustrations for friends and personal projects in my freetime. This is a collection of selected personal artworks and sketches.
