Into the rainbow (Feature film, Digipost)
I was tasked mainly with lighting, look dev, texturing and modelling on this feature film. Was part of a small team of two 3d artists and a 3d lead. Fully lit and textured the provided models of the satellite, heli and jet. Redesigned, modified and enhanced their geo. Projection mapped the background in heli shot.

I was the only 3D artist at the studio and had to come up with creative ways of making gory details in CG. In the video, I modelled, textured, tracked, animated, lit and rendered the displacing geo for melting head and also did everything except for blood and compositing on the CG chest wound.

Young Dragon – My personal project, aim was to enhance my zbrush workflow and learn new techniques. Also, I love dragons.
“Over the Moon” Short Film – A Team Production in my 3rd year in Media Design School – Bachelor of Art & Design, It was a group of 15 students and it took us about 6 months to produce it. I modelled and textured one of the main assets in the film, the Lunar Module in about 4 weeks with ongoing tweaks and modification throughout the duration of the project. My tasks also included lighting a lot of the exterior shots that had the Lunar Module, creating a few bash comps, final comping a couple of shots and simple animation on the lunar module in three shots.
In the video, Animation of the Lunar Module in the first shot is done by me. The flares and the dynamics is not done by me. The Moon surface and the star filled space is done by me in Nuke. The contact sparks of the bullets and falling dust in second shot is done by me. The muzzle flashes are not done by me. All major compositing in the sceond shot is done by me except for the final grade.
“Covering the Queen” Still Life – All assets done by me. This was a final year project in my second year at Media Design School. It took approx 6 weeks from conceptualization to completion.
