Pauline Liquido

Canada,  Surrey Vancouver Film School,  3D Animation and Visual Effects,  January 16, 2015
Hello there!
My name is Pauline Liquido. I am a dreamer. A vision maker. I combine reality and phantasmagoria at a click of a finger!
I was born and raised in the Philippines, moved in Canada back in 2005.

I am a lover of many things, which makes choosing a career path a rather difficult decision. But I eventually decided to attend the 3D Animation and Visual Effects program at Vancouver Film School. During that time, I fell in love with Visual Effects, and knew right then that I would be in for a wild and exciting lifelong quest. Having graduated recently, I wish to apply and further my skills, as well as inspire others along the way.

About the Film:

Leo, Test Patient 108, has been injected with a dark and deadly conductive substance , Hydra 3D. Grievously, the experiment fails and Leo is faced with imminent death. As he tries to escape the facility, something supernatural occurs.
