Alex Budulan FX Artist at Jellyfish

Many congratulations to Escapee Alex Budulan who has become an FX Artist at Jellyfish Pictures.

FX is a growing part of the animation and VFX industry, one where new technology is driving opportunities for employment and growth.

Real time rendering – especially with Unreal Engine – is an area where the technology has shifted in the past few years, with animation and VFX houses abandoning traditional ray-tracers in favour of real time rendering.
