James Watson

United States,  Omaha Vancouver Film School,  Game Design,  August 23, 2014
I am 24 years old and have been working in 3D for the last year and a half. I attended Creighton University where I studied Graphic Design and Digital Design and Development. During my time at Creighton, I learned I wanted to get into 3D and pursued my dream at Vancouver Film School's Game Design program. I graduate from Creighton in 2013, and graduated from VFS last fall. I am an environment artist who enjoys entering the player into something unknown.

I am very dedicated to this industry, and I am so proud to be apart of it. There is not another style of art in the world that can do what we do. I am honored to be entering in this competition with fellow, passionate artists.

The video is compiled of two scenes, "The Researcher's Parlor" and "Vault 09." I hope you enjoy it.
