Who can you help, and how?
I can help those interested in Hair and Cloth.
Can you tell us about yourself and your background?
I started my career in VFX in 2001 owning my own little studio (more like a garage with 3 computers) and doing flying logos and animations for local companies in Calgary. It was not until 2004 when i landed my first VFX gig in R&D for muscles, Hair/Fur. Inbetween grooming gigs, I enjoy working as a Lighting Look dev artist and was booked several times to do lighting and look dev specifically for hair.
How did you get to where you are now?
My first gig was R&D at Mokko Studio in Montreal, researching different ways on how to represent breathing using muscle deformation. After my third gig I led my carreer into Digital Grooming and Creature FX Simulation.
What projects have you worked on?
"Harry Potter" movies
"Narnia - Prince Caspian"
and many others
Where do you draw inspiration from?
My inspiration is drawn from day to day observation and day dreaming. The world around us, as lame as this may sound, is the central inspiration to all artistic influences.
Tell us something odd about yourself?
I stare at people's clothing and hair sometimes.
