Watch my animated 3rd year film here: https://vimeo.com/164041990
My name is Wei Wu and I graduated last year in May from the well-known Character Animation department at the California Institute of the Arts and am currently residing in Germany (I have German citizenship). I am very interested in joining either the gaming or animation industry as a Concept Artist and it would be amazing if I could join your team. There have been many Japanese franchises that had a great impact on me and it would be amazing if I could get the opportunity to work there.
I am a very experienced draftswoman, and I have a strong foundation in anatomy. After learning a great variety of styles, I am comfortable in creating art in styles ranging from highly realistic over to very cartoony. I am also very capable in both 2D and CG animation and have first hand experience in creating character designs for animated shorts and indie games in both very cartoony and more realistic styles. I am a very hardworking and diligent person with broad interests. For example, when I design characters/ environments/ props, I will always do a lot of research and draw from life if possible to achieve designs that appeal to the viewer. As a plus I am also experienced in Unity and making VR games! I have always been a great enthusiast for gaming and enjoy learning anything related to it.
I am an artistically highly flexible person who works well with deadlines. I am proficient with painting/ drawing different characters of different genders, ages or races, whether it is humanoid or an animal/ monster type being. I have been pursuing a career in the gaming/ animation industry ever since graduating and earning a BFA from the renowned Character Animation program at CalArts in 2017 and working for your studio would make a dream come true. Also I’m a good and responsible team worker. I worked with a team of voice actors, sound designers and composers to create an animated short film before and have been working with different teams on commercial indie games before. I also hone and update my software skills on a regular basis.
I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to work at your studio/ company and I invite you to review my attached resume and portfolio online on http://weitoocool.portfoliobox.net/ with the password: cheesecake I am willing to relocate to your studio within 2-3 month with work authorization and I can also start working on freelance jobs anytime. Feel free to send me a test!
Thank you so much for your consideration! I’m looking forward to hear from you.
