Thomas "Tommy" Glässer
​​​​​​​visual computing & communication
Hi, I'm Tommy – I've over 12 years of experience in professional motion design, CGI & postproduction for feature films, TV, and B2B clients.
In 2018, I started my freelance journey. In parallel, I decided to pursue a master's degree in computer science 6 years after my bachelor's degree in multimedia & communication.
This was a lot of work, but I successfully completed it in 2020.
During this time I discovered my love for math, proceduralism, and above all SideFX's Houdini. Therefore my toolbelt includes now not only state-of-the-art editing, compositing, animation, and rendering but also a deep understanding of the underlying technologies (see below for details).
Nowadays, I would probably call myself a technical artist, but who needs job titles 🙂
Anyway, when I'm not super nerdy about CG, you probably find me making noise with WRECKAGE or swinging kettlebells, and lifting heavy stuff.
