Emily Switzer started out as a producer in the VFX industry, working on critically acclaimed projects. After 4 years in an administrative position, she decided to re-evaluate her career and go into training as a 3D artist. Now, after 3 years of independent learning and freelancing, she has re-invented herself as a 3D designer and artist, working in the fields of 3D animation and art direction. Her goal is to make stunning visuals that push the expectations of what digital art can achieve.
Currently she has a short film entitled The Visitors online at DesignTO. The short film documents the multiple alien encounters that took place in her garden throughout August 2020. What started as a simple 3D animation experiment evolved into a multi-disciplinary narrative piece exploring the meditative effects of nature.
