About Benjamin Bailey

I began drawing when I was only 2 years old. Back then, it was just a mix of Crayola colors and creative juices, but in a few years I started drawing every day. I kept drawing all the time, mostly sketching crazy ideas from my head, but eventually I found myself creating more complex projects with acrylics, ink, and charcoals. Then a few years ago I discovered 3D graphics, and I've been exploring the digital art world ever since. Around this time I was also making home movies with my siblings, and soon grew a passion for filmmaking.

As an Open Source enthusiast, I am an active contributor to a number of volunteer projects, including being an editor for BlenderNation.com, the central news site for all things Blender related; PR correspondent for the Morevna Project, the first full-length open source anime film project; CGI modeling and animation for the "Grey Justice: Puncher of Men" short film; teacher ofBlender classes at Blenducation.org, a free webinar service and tutorial hub for learning Blender; and 3D-modeler for the open source non-profit orginiazation FreezingMoon's online/RTS game, "Ancient Beast."

I am studying Film & Television Production at the Savannah College of Art & Design in Savannah, GA. I am continuing my passions in game design, writing, music, and 3D visual effects as I pursue my degree in filmmaking.

I am always looking to expand my portfolio and my skillset, so if you would like to commission me to work on your project, give me a shout! I am efficient and seek the highest level of perfection in my work.
