My name is Michaela Sjöström, living in Sweden, 22 years old (even though I always say 21) and this is my last year studying computer graphics at Gscept (Ltu skellefteå). The reason to why I even started to study computer graphics is because I have been interested in how to make movies, how to make something look like a real shot even though most of the components didn’t exist when they filmed it. I think it all really started when I first saw the “Avatar” movie. I have always been a big “movie-fan” so I could say that it all started from the first moment I saw a disney movie. But Avatar made me realize that: “what if I can do something like this as well?”
So here I am, trying to make my own vfx shot!
