I been an artist at an early age and since then i have harness my eye for what is known as level of detail or commonly known as L.O.D. I first attended ITT Technical Institute (ITT) for the major of Computer Drafting and Design. In that major I learned various programs Such as Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop and various Microsoft programs. After my graduation at ITT, I decided to broaden my horizons by going to the Art Institute of California Inland Empire (Ai). There I studied Game Art and Design and also became a tutor in my final year. There I used many different programs like 3D studio Max, MAYA, Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Z-brush, Unreal Tournament 3 Editor (U.T.3) and the Unreal Development Kit editor (U.D.K.). The programs named play a big part not only in the game industry but also the movie and possibly the whole entertainment industry.
At both schools attended, there were times of working by yourself an working with a team - both creating skills for critical thinking and cooperation, major qualities of production. After I graduated from AI, I got work at a few places. The major one was at Legend 3D where I was a stereo compositor, meaning cleaning up shots and making sure every thing is in the right depth for a digital 3D movie. There I use After Effects, Some Nuke and Mocha Pro and worked on such titles as Transformers 3 and Smurfs. At Legend 3D teams were created and given leaders to help direct the team. The team and Leads are responsible for helping each other out when needed. Another job I had was with Vanguard Software Development; they made apps for the iPhone and iPad. My duty was to be the art director, hold meetings as well as conduct interviews and deal with the hire and fire process. Other than that I did illustrations for story books for kids. There I used Photoshop and After Effects, sometimes using animation and Particle effects to add to the story and imagery.
Now that I have told you my experiences, allow me to tell you of my tutoring methods. First off as a tutor I do not accept that "I can't" because everyone can it just takes some longer than others. Giving up is not an option because sometimes it's just the direction that is being taken that is complicated. If you find the direction the tutored mind walks, then it's easier for the tutor to guide the student down that path to succession. A lot of the time in order to tutor a subject, you must sometimes change the subject to make it relative to the tutored. By bringing a subject to life, it becomes part of your life. Not only do I tutor a person in that subject, but I try to teach that nothing is ever "can't" if you look at it from different angles. Succession is just over the horizon if you're willing to make the journey.
I been using Photoshop since the turn of the century. I used it all through college to create textures for my 3d models at the Art Institute of CA- Inland Empire where I graduated with a BS in Game Art and Design. After graduation I got a job at a company called Vanguard Software Development. I Illustrated Children Story Books Using Photoshop and some times After Effects if it was animated.
I played basketball for ten years. Circulating from point guard to shooting guard and some times small forward. For those ten years I averaged around two double doubles and one triple double per season but that is just an average. I attended basketball camp for two off seasons dealing with fundamentals and work outs. My father has coached basketball at the local high school for over ten years. He also sometimes to help with the basketball camp as well as referee basketball games at local rec. centers. So he has always taught me and pushed me to mu full potential in every sport.
I played football for 8 years and my father was a football coach. I am a 2nd generation quarterback. I was not only a leader to my offense, but to the whole team. I have personally run many plays. During high school i became a utility player. I was a 1st quarterback, 3rd tailback, 1st linebacker, 3rd safety,hands team (receiving for onside kicks), 2nd long snapper, 1st punter, 3rd wide receiver.and this was all in my junior year of high school JV season. My freshmen year we were on the undefeated CBL Champions 1998. I have many game experience dealing with almost every position and possession of the ball.
Well I was more involved in video post production but you don't seem to have that on here.
I Did a quarter of composting in college to help with my demo real presentation. I graduated from The Art Institute CA-Inland Empire with a bachelors in Game Art and Design. I worked at Legend3D for 6 months working on titles such as Transformers 3 and Smurfs. Using After Effects and Mocha Pro, I learned a lot of the tricks of the trade. Legend3D Converts 2d imagery and converts it to Digital 3d for theaters and now the residents. I had to create information that didn't exist and also get rid of information that wasn't suppose to exist with in each frame we were given.
I played Volleyball in high school for three years. But in those two years I gained a lot of experience and celebrations. And almost more discipline than I have ever experienced in a sport. First year on JV we brought back the first male boys volleyball tournament trophy. That year i got brought up to varsity during the CIF play offs but was eliminated. The next year I was on Varsity and we brought back the second boys volleyball but first varsity boys volleyball trophy. That year we went undefeated and brought back the first CBL Championship for boys volleyball ever, but made it to the semi finals for CIF Championship. I also attended the Volleyball Camp that was held at CSUSB.
