Tony Li

New Zealand,  Auckland Media Design School,  Bachelor of Art and Design,  November 28, 2014
Hello, I am Tony Li and I am a 3d Artist.

I recently finished my Bachelor of Art and Design at Media Design School in Auckland, specializing as a Technical Director.

In my final year at school, I had the privilege of being apart of two productions. Reapercussions (Student Film) and Shelved Stunts ( Web Series).

In Reapercussions, I worked inside of a small group of 9 student including myself, coming up with the story idea and early stages of concept art. I was in charged of the environment modeling/Texturing and also all the lighting/rendering of the film.

During Shelved stunts I was responsible for rebooting the design , modelling, and the texturing of one of the main character (Craig) together with another student. later on during the production I also took on lighting and rendering of one of the environment.
