I have recently graduated with a Masters in Digital Effects from Bournemouth University. I also hold a Master of Science in Chemical Engineering and have three years of experience in filmmaking, directing commercial music videos and short films. I see myself as a fast learner and passionate visual effects artist, with good problem solving abilities, strong cinematography skills, experienced in both the 3D and 2D aspects of production and dedicated in the development of original effects techniques.
Drawing inspiration from Edward Hopper’s paintings, the film noir genre and surrealism in the form of a “magical” event, this project combines computer generated environments, live action performance and digital effects. “Dreaming Fish” is about a curious event that takes place on a rainy night while a woman looks through the window of an empty Café.

A remote controlled underwater toy was modelled in the 3D software and implemented into the scene, moving and interacting with the backplate by casting light.
