I’m Natalia Freitas  and here are a few things about myself =)

I’m originally from Belo Horizonte / Minas Gerais – Brazil.  In 2005 I started a Bachelor degree in Classical Animation at the Escola de Belas Artes – UFMG. In 2009 I graduated and started working as a 2D animator. In 2010 I began to teach myself 3D techniques using tutorials and by 2011 I dedicated much of my time to improving my 3D skills and I fell in love with it. Thanks to my new knowledge in 3D and the art works I have done, I was one of three artists to receive a scholarship from the German government to study in their country with all expenses paid (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst).

In 2012 I moved to Germany and applied to a post-graduation position at the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg (Animationinstitut) in Ludwigsburg.  It was up to me to be approved! If I was not, then I would lose the schlolarship. Fortunately, I was one of the three candidates selected to their „Quereinstieg“ program. There I worked on over 15 student projects and also direct my own short. When I got there, my plan was to become a better 3D animator but I discovered my true calling as a 3D artist.

Update: Here are some of the works that I did during the time that I was at the Walt Disney Animation Studios (Moana), Sony Pictures Imageworks (Hotel Transylvania 3_not yet released) and Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg.

„Aladdin is one of my favorite Disney movies and it was such an incredible experience to have worked with Disney legends Ron Clements & John Musker. These are the shots which I animated on the Moana.

VFX Showreel von Stargates Studios mit den Niederlassungen in Köln und Berlin

Die Webseite findet sich hier!

Die Stargate Studios gehören zu den international führenden Anbietern für virtuelle Produktionen und visuelle Effekte (VFX) in der Film- und TV-Branche. Seit der Gründung 1989 in Kalifornien wurden weitere Niederlassungen in Vancouver, Toronto und Malta eröffnet. Seit 2011 ist Stargate Studios auch in Berlin und seit 2014 in Köln auf dem Gelände der MMC Film & TV Studios vertreten.

Vor allem das von Stargate entwickelte „Virtual Backlot“-Verfahren hat eine neue Ära im VFX-Bereich eingeleitet: Die größte Virtual Backlot-Stockfootage Library der Welt ersetzt nahezu jeden Hintergrund eines Spielortes. Anders als bei klassischen Greenscreen-Verfahren erlaubt Virtual Backlot eine umfassende virtuelle Umgebung mit unbegrenzten Aufnahmewinkeln für die Kamera. Das Verfahren wird bereits in zahlreichen namhaften Film- und TV-Produktionen genutzt (u.a. The Walking Dead, Californication, 24, Heroes, Ray Donovan).
