Mischa Kolbe

Switzerland,  Zurich Vancouver Film School,  3D Animation & Visual Effects,  November 06, 2014
I finished my Bachelors Degree in Mechanical Engineering and decided that my artistic side needs room to play, too. I attended the one-year program at Vancouver Film School and happily invested every minute of it, learning a good basis of what there is to know about 3D.
My goal was to start with modelling and then carry it as far through the pipeline as possible. I ended up having time to even composite it, which made me very happy!
My passion for engineering, freeride and the wonders of nature helped me through the exhausting tough parts of the project.
