Matt Lager’s Bio
Since graduating in 2009 I’ve been at several Computer Graphics industry houses. Starting off as a generalist gave me the opportunity to work in many different parts of a production pipeline and allowed me to eventually find my specialty. Currently I’m the modeling and VFX technical director as Salt Studios where we produce high end print work and animation mostly for cosmetics and high fashion companies like Victoria’s Secret, Estee Lauder, and Avon. I oversee all modeling and handle all VFX, which includes dynamics, fluids, particles, and other special effects.
While working on products and print campaigns is my job, work doesn’t always afford you the opportunity to make something as creative and inspiring as you’d like. This is why I always try to have some personal projects to work on in my spare time or compete in online competitions whenever possible.
