Connor Cercone

United States of America,  Hollywood Gnomon School of visual effects,  Digital Production for Entertainment,  June 17, 2016
My name is Connor Cercone, I am a 20 year old Gnomon student originally from Steubenville, Ohio.

I started in 3D back in 2011, during my sophomore year in high school. I Taught myself Cinema 4D and made up my own rules and techniques for modeling, not aware of all of the tutorials online. I continued to get better throughout high school, when in my senior year i was offered a lead 3D artist and video production job at a local advertising company. I worked there for a year until I came out to Los Angeles to attend Gnomon. Since Gnomon my skills have improved beyond what I thought I would ever be able to do when I was back home in Ohio.

This is my demo for 2015. The demo includes all of my work done for classes at Gnomon over my first 3 semesters. There are also a few personal projects in the mix.
