My name is Lies (pronounced as ‘lees’ 😉 ) and I'm a 3D rigger and mocap animator. Over the past few years, I've worked on three animated feature films: Dragon Rider (2020), Ploey-You never fly alone (2018) and Cafard (2015) and three animated shorts: Social Window (2016), Crupus (2015) and Daddy Went. Daddy Did. (2014).
After my bachelor degrees of Multimedia & Communication Technology and Digital Arts & Entertainment, I first started out as a mocap animator. As I like to investigate how people and objects move, after a while I became a rigger as well. I would characterise myself as a technical artist, knowing some scripting languages as this helps me developing all kinds of rigs and tools. I've got a knack for planning and coaching, which comes in handy as currently I'm the supervisor of the rigging team at Cyborn.
My skills as a patient coach and mentor have been further developed in my role as a lecturer at Syntra. I've been combining these 2 career paths for over 4 years, teaching 'Basic Rigging' in Maya and 'Particles and Dynamics' in 3ds Max to 3D artist students. I love to teach, which is why I started following a teacher education. I expect to graduate as a teacher in june 2020.
During my time off, I like to go to theme parks with my boyfriend and friends. I'm a fan of Disney and Pixar movies as they inspire and amaze. On a quiet day, I also like to spend time on my first passion, photography.
