Barbra Ho

New Zealand,  Auckland AUT University,  Bachelor of Art and Design - Digital Design,  December 17, 2014
Hello there! My name is Barbra and I have graduated with a Bachelor of Art and Design (Digital Design) at AUT University last year. I am currently doing my Honours in Digital Design at AUT this year, specializing in more in-depth visual effects and filmmaking techniques. The project I have submitted is a title sequence that I have created for my final university project last year. It is based on the 1935 film "The 39 Steps" directed by Alfred Hitchcock and also the 1915 novel by John Buchan. I have a strong passion for title sequences design, visual effects and compositing, and this has been a fun personal project. My current goal is to pursue a career in the visual effects industry, particularly in film production.
