Irena Smitakova


Passionate and self-motivated Visual Effects artist, recently finishing final year of Visual Effects and Motion Graphics course at University of South Wales in Cardiff, UK.

With a good eye for detail, an understanding of colour, the use of light within a composition and with much enthusiasm for learning, I have gained fundamental 3D generalist knowledge and knowledge of key software such as Photoshop, Nuke and Maya (Arnold, Vray, familiar with Renderman), After Effects, Photoscan, Mari and I have fundamental knowledge of Zbrush, Mudbox and recently I am experimenting with Clarisse. As part of MP4FM Bootcamp group by Garrett Fry, I have learnt and developed techniques of advanced projection mapping within Nuke, that improved my skill to analyse challenging brief in order to create photo-realistic or stylised matte paintings matching the live action plate or standing on its own, that clearly fulfil client’s vision for a deadline.
