First of all what do Electric Art do, and what’s your job there?
Electric Art are a high end creative image house working out of Sydney, Australia. We create mostly still images for advertising using retouching and 3D, but we’re doing an increasing amount of animation work ranging from online to TV. My main job is that of Creative Director so I basically oversee all works going out of Electric Art. I also head up the 3D department. I tend to get fairly involved in the pre-production process, estimating jobs etc.

Hi David (Magnum1976), looking at your web site, you work on a wide range of creative visual projects in both 2D and 3D. How did your career start, in 2D or 3D?
I am self-taught since I was a kid. I did not go to art or design school, but in 1999, I was able to join a communication agency thanks to my graphic skills on Photoshop, Xpress and Indesign. But after 6 years in 2D, I wanted to learn 3D and went on a 3 month training course to get started. I continued to train myself after this with tutorials on 3ds Max.

How did you come to choose MODO as your main 3D software?
During my 3ds Max training, I read a 3D magazine where there was an article about Modo 202, showing the ability to paint directly on the 3D model. I wanted to know more, so I put 3ds Max aside for Modo. The early days in Modo were difficult I must admit it, but once tamed, I have never left it.
