What is your life path?
I left Switzerland to go to Montreal where I had heard that there was a 3D school, NAD Center, teaching Softimage. I attended night school there. After about 6 months the people from Buzz Effects Montreal came to teach us what they do. Each of us had to make an animation for our demo reel at the end of the year. When I met Rick Ostiguy from Buzz, he saw what I was working on and really liked what I was doing. He soon asked me to come to Buzz. They initially hired me for two weeks to work on one commercial and afterwards they asked me to stay. I accepted and it is there that I learnt everything about post production.
ILP have been busy bee’s lately, have a look at their latest creation for Absolut Vodka and Acne Production.
Very nice full cg spots, as all work from ILP beautiful rendered.
Important Looking Pirates just finished two Absolute Vodka, full CG spots, for ACNE production. The challenge was to create a photo realistic set featuring a wide range of frozen objects in mid-air. We tried to capture the action and the weight of falling objects.
