Ryo Oami


Canada | Vanarts

I made my decision in my childhood. I used to watch Hollywood movies with my grandfather. The movies we watched together allowed me to forget unpleasant things and gave me courage to face difficulties. Visual effects were one of the key factors to make me devoted to the world of a film. Even though I grew up and found a movie was an utter fiction, visual effects still have the magic to make me forget it. And that is what inspires me since I was a little child.

Image Engine - Winner



France | ESMA

Currently a 2nd year student of a Master's Degree in 3D animation and VFX at ESMA Montpellier, I really enjoy a lots of 3D domains. I am very curious and a sociable person. Movies with visuals effects like The Matrix have always inspired me. When I started my Cinema studies, I knew I would work in the post-production area.
