Thank You for taking a look at my website!
I am Kyan Etemadi, a senior 3D Artist and Architect from Hannover, Germany. I always had an interest in art and stylization and early on I decided to study architecture. During my studies at the Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany, I saw the potential for architectural design and it's
representation using 3D packages. Through the creative freedoms I had during my studies, I
realized my true interest was in film, entertainment and media. After my Diploma as a graduate engineer with a strong focus on architectural design and a short period of work at an architectural office, I decided to fully migrate into the entertainment industry.
With a post graduate scholarship from the Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst (DAAD), I was able to attend the "3D Animation and Visual Effects" program at the Vancouver Film School. My main focus during my time in Canada was on 3D modeling, surfacing and lighting and especially learning the tools at a professional level. I successfully finished VFS with my "Dumpster King Modeling Reel" in 2012.
From Vancouver I moved back to Germany and started working at Ambient Entertainment in the heart of Hannover. For almost five years I worked as a 3D Generalist on animation feature film productions such as "Tarzan 3D", "The 7th Dwarf", "Happy Family", and smaller 4D movies like Europa Parks "The Time Caroussel 4D" and the feature film spin-off "Happy Family 4D". My responsibilities were modeling, lookdev and lighting for the different productions.
For a short period of time I worked at Bertrand AG in Wolfsburg, Germany, a developer for international automotive and aviation industries such as Volkswagen, Porsche, Bentley and Boeing. There my resposibilities included 3D data preparation for softparts.
Right now I am working as a visualisation expert for “Ganz Einfach GmbH” in Hannover where I am responsible for modeling, shading and lighting full consumer product lines that are sold on Amazon, Otto and Media Markt.
