Hi! My name is Janice. I am a pasionate 3D artist who love to do compositing and animation.
I am an Indonesian 3D Generalist, graduated from the Academy of International Game Architecture and Design at NHTV University, The Netherlands. My major study is visual arts.
This is a short movie I created during my final graduation project. I am very curious about film making. Thus, I decided to create a short animated movie which integrate a life action footage and 3D animation. I have this one imaginary character since years ago. Through this short movie, I would like to bring her to real world and comes alive.
Making Arts is my passion. I like to enjoy the work I do as a part of my interest and learning experience. One of my goals is to contribute in a 3D movie production. I would love to do something that can inspire people to have love, dream, and hope.
