When I was only 10 years old, I started to produce my own little films with some friends. Since then creating videos is my passion and it will ever be. About three years ago I started to work with Maya. Now I am 16 years old and founded my own video & 3d company in March 2019. I think there is so much waiting for us, so much we can learn and so many people to connect with. I am excited what the future may bring!

When I first saw Star Wars and Lord of the Rings. I was so mesmerized on the effects and 3d assets that were shown, It literally blew my mind! From that day, I started to learn 3d software, it was a long journey until I actually got in a school that would mentor me to learn the skills in the Industry.

Kavi Dey

From a young age, I have been very interested in computers and art. One summer, around fifth or sixth grade, I went to a camp to learn about how to use Adobe Photoshop. That experience manipulating images made opened my eyes to digital art. I quickly learned After Effects, then Blender, and now Houdini. As a large marvel fan, watching movies in the theater like Doctor Strange, Endgame or Infinity war, also inspires me to create many of my own visual effects.
