About



A few pages out of my story.

After obtaining a Journeyman certificate in film editing I moved on to become a freelance Build TD with a focus on modelling, sculpting, texture and matte painting. With 7+ years of experience, I worked on a wide range of assets, both hard surface and organic, such as robots, vehicles, spaceships, cities, jungles, digi-doubles and characters. Shows I had the opportunity to contribute to include "Blade Runner 2049", “The Jungle Book”, "Final Fantasy XV”, “Logan”, "Guardians Of The Galaxy" and "Iron Man 3".

Another passion lies in screenwriting and directing, which so far led to two short film productions. "The Document" was screened at the Cannes Film Festival's Short Film Corner in 2013 and "Strangers" is well received as "a film that is both intellectually satisfying and appealing to all the senses." (Richard Propes, The Independent Critic).

I have software expertise in Maya, Zbrush, Mudbox, Photoshop, Mari, Substance Painter, Premiere and Avid. I am also proficient in scripting Python, Html, CSS and some Javascript and PHP.

Testimonials



Some quotes from LinkedIn recommendations.

Florian Gellinger

Owner, RISE Visual Effects Studios


"Erik is the "egg-laying-wool-milk-pig" of visual effects - incredibly versatile and fun to work with. . . . While he's amazing when working as a specialist it doesn't do his true value justice. Motivated through and through, up to the last tip of hair he is keen to get his hands on everything new and exciting, wanting to master the last bit of the film making process. He is a creative and motivational force beyond imagination. And he's just awesome as a human being in general, too."




Myles Asseter

Models Head of Department at Weta Digital


"[Erik] is an extremely talented modeller and always produced clean and technically sound models."




Volkram Zschiesche

Actor, Coach, Director, FLOWZONE


"I had the pleasure to work for Erik as "his" actor in his short movie "Strangers". . . . He created a space in which one could work and express oneself freely as the character and at the same time feeling safe through his concrete and well prepared notions of how to tell his story and his kind, patient and passionate manner as a director. . . . Erik is that kind of person you know, that everything he approaches has high quality, is of value and worth working for."




Alessandro Cioffi

VFX Supervisor at Trixter


"Besides being a pleasure to work with, Erik is a take-charge person who is able to present creative ideas."
