3D Product Design • Modeling • Animation












Tommy Von has been involved in the film and television industry of southern California. He worked for a 3D modeling and animation software company based in San Diego, CA called Pixels Inc., maker of the Mac-based Pixels 3D suite of modeling, animation and rendering tools. (1999-2002).

During that time, he also attended and graduated from the Art Institute of California with a degree in 3D animation, holding the distinction of receiving the "Best Portfolio" award for the class of 2001. Over the years, he has provided motion graphics, animation, 3D Product design, Interactive and Web design as a contract artist for many L.A. and Denver based post production facilities and other companies needing his skills.

3D Printing

Since 2013, Tommy has been designing products in 3D for fabrication using 3D printing, CNC routing, SLS (selective laser sintering), and other Maker technologies in collaboration with Denver area inventors and entrepreneurs. Most designs are on the Polygonz 3D FB page.

Blender

My current 3D app is Blender, which I started using with version 2.49 (almost a decade ago),
and has now become a fully professional creation tool for 3D modeling and animation, sculpting,
game creation, compositing, image editing and video editing, used by NASA, Marvel, and other
TV / Film / Game studios as well as independent content creators.




Fine Art

From 1989 to 1991, I attended 3 years of fine art classes at CSUF.
