๐Ÿ˜€ About Me

Hey, I'm WanYi. Welcome to my personal website! I'm a Houdini Artist from Singapore ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ currently working in Guangzhou ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ณ.

I am an avid movie and animation fan like many others. I did not pursue an education in the arts because I stubbornly believe that you cannot measure art with grades and that art is everywhere.

My career began in ILM Singapore as a Technical Assistant learning the ropes of VFX production. Later on I was lucky enough to transition to the FX team and got to learn Houdini and observe FX elements as part of my job. Iโ€™ve had the pleasure to learn from the best and worked on a number of titles before I left ILM to explore the unknown land that is Guangzhou China.

Having worked in VFX for 6 years, I have acquired a harsher critique for VFX movies. I enjoy them less and I tend to seek out movies more appraised for other aspects. Realising it was time for me to venture out, I decided to explore other forms of storytelling with computer graphics, and that intention led me to where Iโ€™m working now.


I'm working at **DeepMirror** as a Senior FX Technical Artist, using Houdini and Unity to help construct our Metaverse.

The work I do now is vastly different, with quicker turnarounds and visually less demanding. It took some getting use to and changing of mindset from a sleek production pipeline worker to finding my own direction and fighting for the work I want to do. I get to work with shaders and tinker with kinefx as necessary, also writing little scripts and making storyboards for shorts.


Although I no longer fit into a pigeon hole of a typical FX job description, I look forward to making more stuff in the future. You can check out my for a dumping ground of things that Iโ€™ve done both for learning and projects requirements.
