My name is Khan Ahmed Shahzeb and I graduated from Bournemouth University with an MA in 3D Computer Animation. I am currently working as a freelance 3d generalist at an animation studio called Unanico. I am looking to be considered for the position of a 3d artist/generalist. I am eligible and hold the necessary documents to work in UK. I graduated in 2005 with a B.S (Hons.) in Computer Sciences from Lahore Pakistan. After my graduation I found a job in an animation studio, working as a general artist working primarily architectural visualisations and product modelling. I worked there for more than two years. My love for 3D CG began when I saw first of the matrix movies and I decided that this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I am always fascinated with modelling and animation, the fact that you can create and animate something out of nothing still amazes me. It was during my job, at the animation studio that I explored the different facets of 3D CG opted to study animation and came to Bournemouth University. As for the reason why am I the suitable person to work for your company is that I enjoy my work, I love doing animation and modelling. Even when I was working for my studio back home there were very few occasions where I treated work as work, starting out in the studio as a junior CG artist was tough because it was a new animation studio and spending extra hours and sometimes all nighters was a given but in the end it was an incredible experience for me I learned a lot from it. Coming to Bournemouth University was a new challenge in itself. It was my love, passion and drive to learn animation and become better at what I do that lead me to travel all the way from Pakistan to Bournemouth University. The 1 year masters course at Bournemouth University was highly intense, tackling multiple tasks while working on your term project made you feel you that you were in a pressure cooker. As the course progressed I started enjoying working under such pressure and in the end being able to deliver what was expected on time gave a great feeling accomplishment. I see myself in the near future enhancing my current 3D CG skills and becoming a good generalist but moreover a better animator and working for your studio I am certain will help me become that and in return your studio will gain another skilled member in to their team of talented artists.

patrizia morena di sciascio • a.o.c.a. • creative art director I am a senior creative person with a great passion for creativity, illustration and art direction that tells a story – that garners a strong human response. Be it through humour, empathy, or special interest, I love to create that initial connection. My illustrative capacity ranges from my 'passion for fashion', always creating and designing the next outfit i dream up for myself to fully rendered portraiture, both serious and comedic. I love to draw, plain and simple...and having been born with this gift it has always been something I do instinctively. Yes, I have been formally trained at the illustrious Ontario College of Art and Design, in Illustration and Communication Arts, but my talent is a natural gift that I was blessed and came into the world with, apparently drawing on every surface I could reach even before I could speak. My work is diverse and expresses my soul in ways that words can only attempt to describe. I LOVE this form of expression. I also have extensive national and international agency and client experience, building creative business opportunities and solutions for many blue chip clients including P&G Brands, Kelloggs, Kraft, Pepsi / 7•UP, ROGERS Communications, The Hudson Bay Company, CIBC, RBC Financial Group, Toronto Hydro, Suzuki Canada and Microsoft, to name a few. Brainstorming integral ideas with the team regarding the concept for both the design and copy to work seamlessly is where I excel. I have had many years experience sourcing top directors, photographers and illustrators for creative executions and attended many photo and television shoots where at times I even became, the stylist, props person and assistant above and beyond my Art Direction responsibilities, just to ensure the right shot. My CRM portfolio also includes retail, health care, financial services, automotive, telecommunications, technology, tourism and consumer-packaged goods. With all this experience in strategic leadership, brand stewardship, and the creation of award-winning campaigns – the process of ‘Creative Problem Solving’ remains my true passion! Whether it’s creating a ‘brand’ new image or maintaining and building on brands that are tried and true, I painstakingly craft each execution – and it doesn’t matter if it’s a one-off piece, or a fully integrated campaign, comprising of TV ads, outdoor, print, DM, interactive and collateral support materials. Each piece is given the same care and attention to detail, to ensure seamless communication that has it’s very own creative edge. I am a strong team player who successfully motivates colleagues, staff and clients alike. I am an effective communicator, known for my passion towards creating work that is original, thought provoking, innovative, on strategy, on time and on budget – that ultimately gives pleasure to the viewer and gets business results. Above all, I am dedicated to having ‘fun’ when creating solutions across any discipline or media – no matter how large or small the challenge. My commitment is to enrol, move and inspire people through communication no matter what form or expression the message requires – and with multiple awards from Bessies, Art Direction Craft Awards and CMAs, I am positive that I can be an asset to any project. I would love to create the ‘Possibility’ of working with you and starting something great together, and for each other. Warmest regards, Patti
