Geoffrey Loo

United States,  Los Angeles Gnomon School of Visual Effects,  Entertainment Design and Digital Production ,  January 23, 2015
Hey! My name is Geoff Loo, and I like to make stuff up! Early on, I spent most of my time locked in my room clicking Legos together, obsessed with somehow bringing my imagination into a sort of reality. To this day, not much has changed, because I am still just trying to fulfill that same obsession.

Upon entering the Gnomon School of Visual Effects, I quickly realized that there was a whole school of people who shared this obsession, in fact, there was a whole industry. Surrounded by equally motivated (and much more talented!) students and teachers, I found myself in an environment of inspiring competition, where the students constantly supported each other in a wonderful and productive community.

While I enjoyed my time at Gnomon, I am happy to see that the same environment is sought and encouraged by most game companies as well., and that bodes well for making cool stuff!
