I am Alfie Mitchell, I love 3D and the processes behind creating amazing assets and scenes making them come to life in a shot, I also really like a good barbecue. I enjoy the freedom 3D software gives you to create the unthinkable. I'd love to go on a journey to discover as much of it as I can and make some really awesome things. I want to eventually get a career in 3D Generalism/ 3D Lead or 3D Supervisor.
