Albert Vital

United States ,  Lakewood Full Sail University ,  Computer Animation Bachelor's of Science ,  April 03, 2015
My name is Albert Vital but everyone calls me Tre. I've always had an active imagination and since I was a kid I have been drawn to anything out of the ordinary. When I realized I wanted to get into animation I completely left my old life behind and jumped into this amazing world feet first. I began my journey wanting to do nothing more then bring my characters into the world via modeling. I stuck with that until the tail end of my student career when I decided to dive into rigging. Character Setup allowed me to push my creations past just looking nice and giving them the ability to do whatever I wanted. Not just allowing them to move, its much more than that as you'll see in my reel. I am familiar with all parts of the animation pipeline I am most proficient in Modeling, rigging, and VFX.
