Philipp Kratzer, VFX Freelancer, SAE Institute
I‘m a passionate Austrian VFX Freelancer specializing as FX TD / CFX TD and VFX-Instructor based in Munich, working on feature film and TV-series including "Altered Carbon", for which I was honored with a VES-Award in February 2019. My strength lies in procedural FX / CFX simulation, HDA toolbuilding and lighting / shading / rendering – supported by profound teamspirit, problem-solving and good communication-abilities. I started teaching basic and advanced VFX courses (at SAE Institute Germany) in 2014, and it quickly grew into a passion of mine. I am convinced that professional work and teaching has to go hand in hand, because it allows to bring profound experience and production-proven workflows directly to the classroom. My goal is to prepare students in the best possible way for this amazing, but also demanding industry.
