About

After watching the Harry Potter series, I realised my life ambition was to train dragons and play with fire. However, seeing as one is illegal and the other proving to be logically impossible, I discovered VFX could make it possible (and of course - legal). Since graduating University I have been improving my skills through freelance work, personal projects, self teaching and experimentation.

I am currently working as a Junior FX Artist in London, gaining experience in Houdini, integration within a pipeline, as well as continuing my training. I am also freelancing during the rare free days.

I aim to continue developing my skills in VFX and Post-Production and in the future aim to specialise and become an FX Technical Director. I am currently working on FX in Houdini and learning basic coding.

 

 

  • Thomas very much confronts the exact requirements of the scene and never seems to give up, regardless of how many amendments are asked of him, exceeding expectations to deliver innovative, arresting work. I highly recommend Thomas as a great contributor to any film or TV project, an inspiration to work with and a valuable asset.

  • "Thomas is a highly committed and hard-working visual effects artist. He has the logical thinking to execute excellent visuals and meet deadlines without having to be coached. He is guaranteed to deliver."
    Rupert Rixon Various Projects
  • "Thomas has worked on two of my projects and I have recommended his services to a friend. All projects have been different and he has provided different types of VFX work for each project. I have been impressed by his talent, ability to take direction and punctuality in hitting deadlines."
