United States,  San Francisco Academy of Art University,  MFA Animation & Visual Effects,  May 18, 2015
Hi my name is Kai An "Dave" Chuang and I am from Taiwan. I'm studying for a master's degree in AAU and I will graduate in May 2015.
As an FX artist, Houdini is my main tool and I have used Houdini to do all of the FX in every shot of my reel.
I really appreciate CGworkshop, because I learned a lot of Houdini skills from CGworkshop's course.
I have strong passion in FX. My goal is to see my credit in the movies as an FX artist/TD.
