about me

My name is Richard Levene and I am a 24 year old visual effects artist from London. I am primarily a 3d lighting and rendering artist but have a strong 2d compositing background.

I completed a BA Hons Degree in 3d Digital Design from the Kent Institute of Art & Design Rochester in 2006, before attending Escape Studios, a world renowned Visual Effects School in London.

Since finishing my course in March 2007, I have had the opportunity to work on a number of projects ranging from feature film to product design.

I am currently working for a CGI visualisation company called Farmhouse Post. www.farmhousepost.com


The secret project I was working on aired this easter weekend. Red Dwarf was the show and I was fortunate enough to work on it.
Close to 300 shots were completed in the space of a few weeks by a team of artists selected by VFX Supervisor Mike Seymour from FXPHD.com as part of a Special Ops course run in the January 09 Term.
View the results and more in the new April 09 term at fxphd.com. I will be teaching a class or two regarding the shots I completed for the show.
