Juan Fer Bravo


Mexico | Vancouver Film School

The first time I new I wanted to be part of this industry was when I was finishing High School 6 years ago and I was unsure about what I wanted to do for the rest of my life, drawing has always been one of my passions but after watching the pixar documentary I knew I had to be part of this amazing industry where I´ll be able to be myself and create more. After finishing my bachelor degree in Design, last year I did the 3D animation program where I was formally introduced to the Industry .


India | Vancouver Film School

I fell in love with 3D when I found myself completely absorbed in the Disney/Pixar movies. It was like, nothing else mattered.

Since I was very young I have loved to draw and create characters. When I discovered that I could work doing that, I knew that was what I wanted to do.

Sunny Wai Yan Chan


Hong Kong | Savannah College of Art and Design

Back when I was getting my bachelor's degree in real estate and construction, my professor told us to pitch our final projects in an innovative way i.e. not just same old PowerPoint presentations. This led to my first time using After Effects for motion graphics and I fell in love with animating stuff ever since. After years of exploration, I have found my passion in cinematic 3D animation.



When I was having more fun drawing Dragon Ball Z and illustrations in class rather than dealing with career choices that seem like an absolute drag. When doing a 2d animation during my diploma I was introduced to 3D and Maya and found it to be tonnes of fun and the right choice for me.

Léa Rocton


France | Ecole de communication visuelle - Bordeaux

At the beginning I wanted to imagine and create sets for theatre and cinema. What I liked was to create illusion and immerse people inside universes. Then I discovered 3D, sculpt and all the possibilities that offers. So I started my studies, today it’s been 5 years, I choose to specialized in 3D modeling to create characters and environments to tell stories.


Malaysia | Dasein Academy of Art

well. It is start from my secondary school. But before this, I quite like to draw, make hand-craft. What makes me really get in to this industry is when I was 13 years old, I watched a feature animated movie, which is "How to Train your Dragon". It was so amazing and I wish to become one of the part of the production team.



I have been in contact with arts since i can remember. Always loved to draw but was until i went to collage that I discovered digital arts and I instantly knew that I wanted to do that! Later discovered Zbrush and digital sculpting and never stopped since then!

Bertran Telles Evarini



Since my young age, when I was nine years old, my father taught me everything he could about vector art. I asked him to teach me because I wanted to be just like him. I realized that 3D was my ultimate goal at school, with a teacher that made me see that in 3D I could be someone.

Thiago Paulino


Canada | Vancouver Film School

Drawing since I was a kid, my whole journey as an artist was influenced by the gaming and movie industry. The first decision that puts me on the track was getting a degree in Industrial Design at the age of 18, which though me a lot about concepting, design thinking, materials, and processes.

Maximilian Lambrecht


Germany | Hochschule Hannover

Just as every other child, I really enjoyed playing in imaginary worlds, defeating dragons with sticks and living in castles made of sheets. But as I grew older there were still stories to be told and worlds to be built, so when I found out there was an industry that allowed me to live out those fantasies, I knew I wanted to be part of it! That much I owed to my younger self.

Christian XIONG

I'm realised when I'm searching to create everything I want because I always wanted to show you my world and my origins. And with 3D, I think everything is possible.

The idea of creating things, put to paper my universe and to be able to bring some creation to life by animating them, are for me the most interesting and stimulating part in 3D domain.

Sanket Tonde


United States | Savannah College of Art and Design

I started off as a Computer Engineer, but it didn't stimulate my creative side enough. My love for video games turned me towards the entertainment industry. It gave me immense joy in investigating characters and environments like a crime scene; finding clues that gave you hints about the underlying story. Now, I would like to reverse the roles and be the person that places those clues and produces art that appeals to the audiences beyond aesthetics.
