Hi, my name is Arzan Bagli, I graduated from the Academy of Art University in SF in December of 2008 with a BFA in Technical Animation, and focused largely on effects and character TD classes. I am currently working for Gateway Group One as a Systems Admin on an H1-B Visa in the USA, as I am originally from India. I would most definitely be open to relocate to. I am available to start work right away.
Below are some of the skills I possess that may be of interest to you:
• My technical knowledge includes MASSIVE Crowds, manipulating motion capture data, Character Rigging, Setup and Tools, Cloth, Fur, Hair, Fluids, RBD’s, RenderMan, Python scripting, MEL scripting, Particles, familiarity with the Linux environment. I am fluent with Fluids, Particles and RBD's in both Maya and Houdini. I have also used Realflow extensively. I am well tuned at writing scripts and expressions in mel, python and hscript to manipulate particles, fluids etc. in the above packages. I work proficiently with software packages such as Maya, Massive, Houdini, Realflow & Renderman Artist Tools together and separately. From the traditional art stand point I have learned to tune my eye and hand at the Academy, and used to be a Graphic and Flash Web Designer while studying engineering.
• I welcome the opportunity to work in a team environment and collectively achieve a set goal. I am good at following directions, work well under pressure, welcome suggestions, discussions and critiques to help me better the project. I offer a strong troubleshooting ability, enjoy new and challenging tasks and strive to meet scheduled deadlines while upholding the quality of my work. I am always thirsty for more knowledge and ever ready to learn new skills. I am a hard and diligent worker and can be trained relatively easily to new software environments and tools. Thank you for considering me as a candidate for your team.
