About

My name is Jakob Kousholt. I am a Senior VFX Modeller working primarily in the film industry. I have worked as such studios as Framestore, MPC and Cinesite working on numerous films. I am currently taking a break from on site VFX work, while I am studying traditional sculpture and drawing, at the Florence Academy of Art. I keep myself extra busy with a healthy amount of freelance work, sculpting characters and creatures for pitch work. Feel free to contact me at jakobjk@gmail.com

Besides working as a modeller for the film industry, I have also worked with commercials, cinematics and games. I also do presentations and teach varying classes ranging from one-hour talk about the whole VFX pipeline, to one week introductory level digital sculpting classes.
