South Korea | SF Film School

After watching Iron Man in high school, I interested in VFX . It was fascinating for me to believe that cartoon characters exist somewhere in the real world through computer graphics. While learning VFX, when I created what I imagined using a 3D program,I felt proud that I couldn't express in words and this experience gave me confidence in my job as a VFX designer.

However, when I turned 18, I discovered VFX industry through YouTube and MCU movies. At that moment, I found myself VFX is the most approachable way to fulfill my dream with nowadays advanced technology. So I decided to pursue my dream as a VFX artist.
