Mark Bailey

I have around fifteen years of experience in VFX as a generalist, lighter, supervisor and lead technical director.
I use Maya + Arnold as my preferred combination.
I also use and teach vRay.

I have a VFX studio and team to hand for large projects and am available for freelance work.

Further information

I also tinker with bicycles and am making Virtual Reality Cardboard games for fun using Unity.
I have also performed VJ gigs in front of thousands at the V-festival: Live-mixing video and FX to music.
I've worked in Sydney and Istanbul and travelled extensively. I am interested in science, physics, AI and engineering developments.

I'm looking for mid-to-senior lead or CG supervision roles with an aim to stay long-term within a company.
My aim is to help make great looking scenes, improve tools and pipelines; smoothing out the creases, reducing the steps to final.

I've a good balance of creative and technically-minded skills in both 2D and 3D departments.

Essentially, VFX is my vocation - not just a job. I'm constantly looking to improve my skills and dabble with the latest tools whenever possible.
