ABOUT ME

Location: London, UK

Curriculum Vitae: download

My name is Adrianna and I am a Visual Artist from Poland currently based in London. I obtained my undergraduate degree in Computing for Graphics and Animation in Aberdeen, Scotland in 2015 and I have graduated with MA Digital Effects degree at NCCA Bournemouth University in 2016. I have also recently graduated from Raindance Film School in London (under De Montfort University Leicester) with a masters degree in Film focusing on screenwriting and directing. I am interested in many aspects of visual arts including filmmaking, computer-generated graphics and VFX creation, but currently, I particularly specialise in Mixed Reality and Volumetric Video content creation (working as a Volumetric Capture Tech Art Lead and Post-Production supervisor at Dimension Studio). We work with volumetric capture technology in close collaboration with Microsoft Mixed Reality Capture Studios.

I also have knowledge about building and rigging the volumetric capture stages, camera operation, software troubleshooting and maintenance, 360-degree video, architectural visualisation as well as effects, simulations, procedural effects, modelling, lighting and compositing. I am an experienced user of SideFX Houdini, Nuke, Cara VR, Autodesk 3dsMax, Adobe After Effects and 2D software including Adobe Creative Cloud packages. In terms of film-related experience, as part of my recent MA degree, I have written a screenplay for my first short film Lungs (www.lungsfilm.com) which I will be directing next year. I have extended knowledge about the film pre-production process (close collaboration with the producer, budgeting, scheduling, crewing and casting) as well as I know the basics cinematography.
