Hey! My name's Liam and I'm a University student from Australia. I'm enrolled at Deakin University and study videography and animation. My goal at the present time is to broaden my skills, meet new people, develop connections, and help out in the freelance industry to the best of my ability before hoping to pursue a full time career in film. My main passion is visual effects, or VFX film editing. Blowing stuff up and adding blood is great fun, but on a serious note I am professionally and self taught in Adobe After Effects, Final Cut Pro and Maya. I also specialise variably in web design and photographic manipulation (Photoshop). My skills cover a wide range of digital video manipulation; from cutting to transitions, 3D text imposition to encoding. Whatever your project entails, I will be more than happy (and am more than capable) to develop a strategy and solution to ensuring the best possible outcome for you as a client.
