This showreel presents parts of my digital effects projects which I created as MA Digital Effects student at Bournemouth University. I worked from Preproduction to postproduction with the programmes Houdini, Nuke, Adobe Creative Suite, PhotoScan. Mudbox, ZBrush, Maya and 3DsMax. The reel includes a wide span of different digital effects like fluid, volume, fur and smoke simulations.
