Hyejoon Hwang

Animation & Visual Effects / BFA

I'm a VFX artist, with a passion for learning and creating amazing experiences through storytelling. When I was younger, I was deeply inspired by the way visuals and stories come together and become powerful by having an impact on each other. I wanted to become an artist that can provide the audience the chance to experience something powerful and exciting.

I'm currently pursuing a BFA in Animation & Visual Effects, Focusing on VFX Compositing at Academy of Art University. As a Lead Compositor at StudioX, I design shots and communicate with the VFX Supervisor, Producer, and Clients(Directors). Also, I help the artists to solve technical problems they face each week. I transferred from the School of Visual Arts where I enjoyed working as a lab assistant. I learned how to troubleshoot Maya and loved helping students. I also became the co-leader of the VFX club. I brought speakers and guests from the industry to share their experiences and do workshops. Students loved it and I was really glad to help them and share knowledge about VFX.

I can’t wait to dive deeper into the world of VFX!

My skills are Compositing, Matchmoving, Lighting, Texturing, and Rotoscoping. I'm proficient in Nuke, Maya, SynthEyes, Mocha Pro, Substance Painter and Shotgrid.
