Akira Endo
VFX Creative Director / Digital Artist

Akira Endo is a specialist in 3D animation and compositing. His roots lie partially in the far east, Japan. At the age of six, he came to Germany and discovered drawing and watercolor painting as a wonderful activity. But also computer games and technology had a big influence on Akiras development. Now mostly digital pens, brushes and the use of colors and forms are part of his professional career beneath computers, tablets and monitors. The fascination for artistic design has driven Akira to his current profession and he has been working in the industry for over 20 years now.
Since 1993, Akira has worked as a freelancer for 3d animation, motion graphics and compositing.
He is well connected with other artists and studios which enables him to setup teams and grow on demand. His focus lays mainly on product-trailers, visualizations and commercials but he also enjoys the creation of non-commercial work like art-projects, documentaries and charity-projects.
