My name is Tom and I'm graduated from the AIE in Sydney at the end of last year. I love animation and vfx and seeing ideas brought to life. I love the endless possibility of the virtual worlds we are able to create and explore through this craft and I hope to work on feature films in the future, as well as hopefully developing some of my own content.
