I am Michael Nguyen, a 3D VFX Artist. I have experience as a Generalist but I am focusing on CFX. At the moment, I am learning to do muscle sims to bring the creatures I make to life. In the future I would like to be a Creature Artist for feature films.
Basketball: because I like the adrenaline, team work and competitiveness of it. Art challenges and clubs on discord where I can create 3D art and sculpt with others!
What job position would excite you the most to start your career with?
Junior CFX because I have always been a fan of creatures from Pokémon and hard surface robots like Transformers. I also find making creatures relaxing and rewarding when its comes to life!
Tell us an achievement you're proud of.
'Kiwis Dream' has been my favourite project because I had a blast making some of the characters and it turned out really great! It also won a lot of awards and the work put into it really paid off. Overall, it was a relaxing and fun project and hopefully more of these type of projects will come in future.
Would you rather be a wizard, Jedi or superhero? and why?
Superhero with the ability to teleport because I could be anywhere I want at anytime.
If your life was a movie what would it be?
Pokémon Detective Pikachu because I like creatures and it would be cool to be in a world full of them even though we do have animals I'd like more!
What was your crowning moment of your time at Escape?
My crowning moment would probably be able to meet people who have the same interest as me in VFX!
