Crystal Bretz
Senior Modeler @ DNEG
Montreal, QC, Canada

I started my career working as a CG generalist at Artifex Studios, in Vancouver, BC. At Artifex I've had the opportunity to work on visual effects for tv series and feature films, submitting under tight deadlines and participating in regular reviews.

I then started working with Method Studios as a modelling and texture artist in Vancouver BC working on feature films. I had the opportunity to model and texture a wide variety of things from environments to creatures with high attention to detail.
