On behalf of the sponsors and judges, The Rookies would like to congratulate the following category winners.
United States | Gnomon — School of Visual Effects, Games & Animation
Coming from a film background with a passion for fine art especially anatomy, life drawing and traditional sculptures I have develop a serious interest for hyper-realism, digital humans and character art which became my main focus during my education alongside grooming, the study of light and composition as a look development artist.
Spain | Animum3D School
The first time I discovered that I wanted to dedicate myself to the world of 3D animation was when I went to a festival called ANIMAYO. From that moment on, when I saw the work of Juan Solís, I knew I could make a living out of it. From then on I dedicated my free time to learn through youtube as much as I could. Currently I decided to study at ANIMUM 3D where I perfected and acquired new knowledge to reach a professional level. It's my passion, most of my free time is dedicated to 3D modeling.
France | ESMA
I was 8 years when I realised that I wanted to work in creative media and entertainment . I was captivated by the magic of cartoons and movies. I knew, in front of a classic Disney movie, that I would like to do this with my life.
France | Ecole Supérieure des Métiers Artistiques
I was obsessed with cartoon network growing up. I kept watching the channel even at a later age. Animated characters always fascinated me with their personalities and movement. I chose to study Computer Graphics and Interactive Media at ALBA university in Lebanon. That is where i discovered 3D animation, and it was a whole other world for me. After graduating with a BFA in Computer Graphics, i decided to pursue 3D animation in full focus at one of the top animation schools i found online. ESMA.
