My name is Oliver Weingarten, I´m based in Siegen/Germnay and I´m working as a 3D and VFX artist and technical generalist for the past 19 years. I´m delivering complete mid range 3d projects for agencies or corporations for exhibitions, print or internet.
I´m also doing custom 3D and VFX work for international post production companies as freelancer. I worked as particle/simulation TD and team lead on several international commercial productions.
I´m very active in the Softimage community with hosting the si-community, a dedicated softimage forum, and organizing the yearly SOFTIMAGE|ÜberTage event.
