Hello! My name is Martin, I am originally from Holland and I am currently finishing my masters in 3D Visual Effects at Escape Studios. I am a generalist with a focus on lighting, texturing and lookdev. I get inspired from many places, such as animated films, high-end product visualisations, game art and cinema. I would love to have a career in London where I get the opportunity to create beautiful work with talented and motivated teams. I am interested in working in film, advertising and/or feature animation.

I take feedback well, am an active listener, am driven to learn new skills that will allow me to create better work, I enjoy switching tasks and disciplines depending on the work that is expected from me.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

In five years I would love to have learned many new skills in my field, and hope to have a job that gives me more responsibilities in that sector. I would love to grow as an Artist and experience new ways of working.

What job position would excite you the most to start your career with?

I would enjoy working as a Hard Surface Modeller, Lighting or Texturing Artist, or within a Lookdev Role.

Which game or movie inspired you the most to choose this career path?

Ocarina of Time. I loved that game so much and made me very curious about 3D.

Describe your favorite animated or VFX sequence.

The 4D sequence from Interstellar. It's such a beautiful scene and lighting and colours are fantastic. I would love to learn how it went from concepting to the final version, and how it was rendered and composited.

What was your crowning moment of your time at Escape?

I had the opportunity to direct a short film. I am an introverted person so I found it a challenge. Taking on the role of Director pushed me to become a better communicator and manage a team along with my Producer.
