Lead Animator and Pipeline T.D. at Mompozt (formerly Zero Fractal), Bogotá, Colombia (2006 - December 2012)

The company I worked for, Mompozt, deals mostly with TV commercials. I was involved in all aspects of production and responsible for the layout, animation, and render setup of all CG projects (also some basic compositing if needed). My last couple of years with Mompozt I became responsible for keeping the production pipeline running smoothly by guiding the artists to use the right tools for the right job and serving as communication bridge between pre-production, production and post-production.

Lead Animator for In Motion Studios, Bogotá, Colombia (2004 – 2006)

This was a company I created along with three other artists from my previous job. We dealt in a variety of mediums and fields including web animation, architectural visualization, medical animations, animated backgrounds for on-line libraries and corporate animated videos. The company was short lived however it gave me great challenges that made grow professionally by leaps and bounds.

Lead Animator and Technical Director for Relevant Television, Bogotá, Colombia (2002 – 2004)

While at this company I was the lead animator and at the same time technical director due to my previous knowledge of 3dsmax and character studio (specifically motion flow) since this software was the main tool to recreate vast crowds of ancient Egyptians building the ancient pyramids. This (sadly) never aired documentary was called "ARIKAT: The secret of the pyramid stones".

Animator for Hope Ranch FX, Los Angeles, CA, USA (2001-2002)

My first job right out of college. I did a ton of work using 3dsmax and character studio. It was a for a series called “Dark Justice”. Due to tight deadlines we used a lot of mocap. Here’s where I learned to used Cstudios’s motion flow to create animations out of several mocap clips.

On-site internship for Nickelodeon Studios, Orlando, FL, USA (summer 1999)
