Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Bratislav Vidanovic

Pirot, Serbia
I finished post graduate studies on MSc Digital Visual Effects studies from Leeds Metropolitan University, UK. I graduated from Metropolitan University in Belgrade, Serbia with BA in Interactive Media Design. I specialize in digital compositing, but I am also very skilled in 3D modeling and texturing, motion graphics, video editing and photography. In addition to that, I am also quite confident with designing graphics for digital or print mediums. I have used previous mentioned skills over past 5 years as a freelance artist, working on many different projects, on almost every day basis. I also worked 3 years as a part of interactive media team, producing interactive installations.
I have experience with few 3D and compositing packages including Maya, Mudbox, After Effects, Nuke, Cinema 4D, Houdini. I am comfortable animating in both 3D and 2D, as well as writing simple expressions to help drive my animations. I am quite good at digital sculpting and texturing, working with UV and Ptex maps, both complex and low poly models. I am also very skilled with Illustrator, Lightroom and Photoshop, Premiere and Final Cut.
