My name is Russell Hirtzel and I am a visual artist focusing in the areas of 3D and motion graphic design.

In early 2005 I graduated from the Art Institute of Portland with a BS in Media Arts and Animation. Since then I have been honing my craft as a freelancer in the motion graphics industry.

My 3D skill set includes character animation, modeling, texturing, lighting, setup, rendering and general animation inside of Maya and Cinema 4D. I am also fluent in After Effects, from animation to compositing.
I live in the Great Pacific Northwest, in Vancouver, Washington. Not to be confused with our cousin to the north Vancouver, BC, Vancouver Washington is a short hop across the Columbia River from Portland, Oregon. I do most of my work out of a studio space in downtown Portland.

If you would like to contact me about freelance work, please feel free to drop me a line at russell.hirtzel@gmail.com Read Less
