Character Animation

Specialized in working with Autodesk Maya Software I have animated characters and creatures in feature and short films, live action and traditional animation films, as well as in TV commercials.

I have also animated characters using Autodesk 3ds Max, Motion Builder or Softimage Software.

With a good knowledge of film making techniques and story telling, my passion is to give the best performance to a character and effectively serve the given story.


Visual Effects

Former work in Visual Effects includes assignments as CG-Supervisor for "Independence Day", Digital Effects Supervisor for an action driven TV-Series, and CG-Artist on various other projects.
