Me

Thank you, for your visit into my website, I would like to introduce myself; my name is Josimar and I’m Lighting Technical Director who has over 7 years in the VFX industry. I was born in a beautiful city called Oaxaca de Juarez in Oaxaca, Mexico. Living there until my high school, decided to study my university in Puebla city and get my Bachelor’s degree in Interaction Design and Digital Animation (Computer Animation) by the University Iberoamericana Puebla.

After, had been working for a few years in Mexico. I could get the opportunity to study the 3D Animation and Visual Effects program at Vancouver Film School (VFS) in Vancouver, BC. Canada. Living and learning from a multicultural place like Vancouver, meeting a lot of wonderful people from around the world and of course learning about the VFX Industry from experienced people.

Later, I completed the program, MPC offered me the opportunity to get into the MPC Academy; learning, specializing and improving my skills as a VFX Lighter. Having the fortune of participating in great movies.
After my year in MPC, I got the possibility to work in DNEG Vancouver, Rodeo Fx, DNEG Montreal, Mr. X Montreal and currently working in Digital Domain Montreal.

For new show-reel policies, I’ve to be more limited with its diffusion. If you want to see my latest reel, feel free to contact me and I’ll give you the Vimeo’s link and the password, it doesn’t matter whether you’re a recruiter, VFX artist or just a curious person.
Cheers
