The 3D Animation program at VanArts gave me the opportunity to work hands on with Maya for an entire year while working one on one with industry professionals. We learnt the principles of animation but more importantly the keys to quality performance. Lastly, we had the opportunity to concept and create our own short film, mine was a spooky take on the classic song The House Of The Rising Sun.
My love for live theatre and improv comedy comes out in all things that I do. It might sound surprising but my favourite part of animating is shooting and analyzing my own reference. While studying at VanArts I became known at screenings for having the most memorable (and probably most embarrassing) reference footage because I commit fully to every performance.
With 8 years of Graphic Design experience in the dating industry, I know what elements go into creating an appealing design. I use my marketing expertise to find poses that impact audiences on a reptilian level. Also I’m very familiar with corporate dynamics and creating work that meets the clients request.
I want to create appealing animations that move the people who didn’t know they could love 3D. I am most confident using Maya, Arnold Renderer, Photoshop, Illustrator, Premier Pro, Krita, Adobe Publisher, UXPin and so much more.
