onsite is as good as offsite - whatever suits the project best
My name is Monika Bress and I am a German character animator, modeler and 3D/2D generalist.
I am passionate about character animation. I started out with a love for classic Disney animation and worked on a few short movies as traditional animator. Soon I discovered the possibilities of computer animation and I am hooked since.
I have a deep understanding of the principles of animation and an eye for timing and composition. During my travels in the digital world I learned a solid hands-on overview of general 3D techniques like modeling, shading and rendering.
In addition, I know my way around most compositing packages and have a great understanding of the compositing basics. This has always proven to be very useful in production so far and I am working on always expanding my horizon.
Most of all, I love to do animations, especially character animations. This is, were a story starts to work its magic and I love to be a part of that.
