Hello, my name is Stephen Ketchum. I am a recent graduate of Columbia College Chicago, and will be graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Film (Concentration in Animation). I am an animator and environment modeler. My focus and passion is in the field of animation focusing on the use of Autodesk® Maya; however I have been expanding my knowledge base and skill set by learning additional animation and rendering programs such as Vue9 and Vray. I have also created several projects utilizing Nuke6, along with additional compositing and color correction programs.
I am most proud of my recent work on the faux trailer, THE HARVESTER, which recently was screened at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. My visual effects work is highlighted in the dramatic opening scene of the short film. I utilize Apple based software for the majority of my video & film post-production editing and DVD authoring. However as noted in my resume, I am skilled in a wide variety of software platforms and programs.
I would love for the opportunity to share my passion in animation and film production with you and your company. I feel my creative abilities, coupled with my education provides me with the skill set that can provide an immediate impact with your company . I also feel that your company can provide me the environment that would allow my skills to enhance, while working on and creating new and innovative projects.
I am available to meet with you and your associates at any time to showcase my talents and body of work. Samples of my work can be delivered and are available upon request or can be viewed via my website http://www.stephenketchum.com/.
