Bringing another dimension to 3D content creation and motion graphics

about us

O4D is the online portfolio of 3D and motion graphics artist Owen Rees-Hayward.

UPDATE: for the sake of work-life balance I've decided to put the 3D/motion graphics work on-hold for the time being and return to the world of software.

In 2014, after years as a sought after freelance software developer and technical leader, I decided to move into the world of 3D animation and motion graphics. Hundreds of intense hours of training later, here I am. Reinvented.

It has been a great experience so far. Each day I'm adding new creative tools, techniques and experience to my existing technical skillset. Plus a whole new set of friends and colleagues.

Maya, After Effects, Photoshop, MatchMover and SynthEyes constitute my primary toolset. I also have additional experience with Houdini and Premiere Pro. You can read more about my skills and online training here.

What can I do for you?

Modelling in Maya and Mudbox I can create the assets and scenes you need, including texturing and lighting.

I can rig and animate models; adding particle and fluids simulations when necessary.

Using 2D and 3D motion graphics I can tell your story and communicate your message in an engaging and creative way.

I can perform a wide range of compositing tasks to pull your digital assets together into a cohesive whole.

We see the world in 3D. It's the way we perceive reality. Why wouldn't our entertainment be in 3D? James Cameron
