After my graduation at high school in ´08 I worked as a graphic designer in an agency in Styria, Austria. At this time I learned Maya & Cinema4D autodidact.
In ´10 I moved to Salzburg to study Multimedia-Arts with specialization in 3D, Game Design and VFX to get a deeper level of knowledge, during this time I launched my agency thomasser. My focal points are definitely layout, after effects compositing & storyboarding, but i also like to do concept art, texturing, lighting & animation. After all, I see myself as an allrounder. I´ve a lot experience with the Adobe CS Design Standard as well After Effects and Premiere Pro; Maya and Cinema4D. I know how to work with Mudbox, Nuke, Mari, ZBrush and e-on VUE; render with VRay & also use bifrost for simulating cool stuff.
Currently I work at digic pictures Ltd
with years of experience in several parts of the creative industries I can claim myself as an allrounder
As an allrounder it is part of me to keep my eyes on everything, check the interaction of every single detail that fits together and keep myself up to date to any styles.
Bringing ideas to paper, onto screen, into 3D space, newspapers, or wherever and emphasize emotions in the audience is my passion. It is my way to express myself.
I am a cineast and composition-addict who is thinking in layout. Thanks to my sketchbook in which I make notes and scribbles I keep almost every idea.
As an empathic human being and author of two book about creating and increasing emotions I always try to understand and fit into the atmosphere of the setting.
Bringing pre-production at the beginning, production or post-production at the end to the very best level is what keeps my motivation high and makes my work satisfying.
I don’t only think about my parts. Stepping outside the box, understanding the other parts of the project and how everything has to fit together is what makes me different.
As a boy of around 7 years I told my parents that I am going to work for disney. One year later my dad gave me an old and dusty case,
filled with oil colors, turpentine, brushes and linen papers. To this day I work hard and almost every day to reach my dream.
