About me

I am senior freelance Houdini FX artist and compositor. I've been working on procedural modeling, lighting, shading and rendering in Houdini/Redshift/Octane and compositing at Animatrix animation studio recently. We've been doing animated commercials for Danish Railroad Company. At Topalsson I was working on various tasks including compositing, vehicle rigging and animation, fluid and particle effects. Previously as Compositing and FX team lead at Froggy Heart animation studio, I solved a lot of problems and had a variety of interesting tasks. R&D of lighting and rendering solutions, scripting, CG camera work, and directing. And of course compositing supervision and some FX, like cloth simulation, particles, dust, etc. I taught successful Fusion compositing class for junior compositors and Houdini FX class here at our studio as well. In one year I've got two promotions in the company I am working for (from sn. compositor to comp. team lead and later to head of comp. and FX department).

I am fast learner, always love to learn something new, so I'm studying programming quite intensively. Some VEX and Python for CG work and Javascript, Ruby, HTML5 and CSS for some future projects. I can communicate professionally in Lithuanian (native tongue), English and Russian both spoken and written.
I am always open to new opportunities. If you have any proposals or/and questions, do not hesitate to contact me.
