Summary

I’m Justin Snyder, a specialist in 3D Animation, Game Art, Visual Effects, Motion Graphics, Product Visualization, Graphic Design and Video Production.

I chose to be a CG Generalist because I enjoy all kinds of media. Animation is present in our everyday lives, whether we realize it or not. From commercials to television and video games. I love it all.

I keep up to date with industry trends through workshops, newsletters, and the indy community.
