Tell us about yourself?

I attended Escape Studios where Bhaumik was my tutor.  I then went on to work at Bournemouth University, Blue-Zoo and Framestore.  I’m currently an animation intern at Blue Sky.

What got you interested in VFX?

I was always interested in animation and realized there was a career doing it. I wanted to learn as quickly as possible to get a good understanding of how to land my first role!

What has been your favourite project?

I’ve worked on a few LEGO commercials which were a lot of fun.  I’m currently working on characters from the Ice Age movies which is a really good challenge!.

How was Bhaumik as a Tutor?

Bhaumik was very easy to talk to and was really good at adapting his teaching style with people of different skills. I was a beginner and had no previous 3D experience he taught me a crash course in Maya, pointing me in the right direction.

What’s the best thing about working in VFX?

That you get to work on amazing movies with a bunch of really talented people!.
