Andreas Feix

Germany,  Ludwigsburg Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg,  Animation & Effects,  March 31, 2015
Hello everybody,
My name is Andreas Feix, and as of recently I graduated at the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg in Ludwigsburg, Germany.
Although my focus rests primarily on compositing work, using both After Effects & Nuke, I also do alot of work as a 3D generalist using 3ds max, v-ray, and a host of additional plugins. Thanks to my studies I have in addition specialized in the creation of stereoscopic content and ended up on multiple stereoscopic films as a lead artist.
Given my past experience and interests I'm aiming for a career in visual effects, television and commercials, apart from supporting other projects I also gravitate towards developing & directing my own short animation & visual effects productions, as I have done so before, and hope to keep that creative spark alive in the future... :)

So enjoy, and plese vote if you're a fan of dragons, dinosaurs, fantasy etc. :D
