My name is Ty Roberson and I am studying visual effects at Savannah College of Art and Design. Ever since I was young, I’ve always had a great interest in film and the visual arts that went along with it. After seeing Jurassic Park as a kid, I began focusing on studying makeup, animation, and CGI for movies. As I entered high school, I gained the opportunity to work with After Effects and Maya, and gained an interest in modeling and compositing for my own backyard shorts. I had the opportunity to go to Georgia Tech, to study the technical side of visual effects, but I declined. Wanting to develop my visual side more, I chose to attend SCAD and work towards becoming a cg focused artist.
I enjoy working from the start of a production pipeline to the end, beginning with modeling work based off of early concepts and ending with post production compositing.
