History

From 1998 to 2006, Tommy Von was involved in the film and television industry of southern California. During this time, 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. 
(1999-2001). 


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. Also during this period, he provided motion graphics, animation, 3D historical re-constructions, and architectural visualizations as a contract artist for many L.A. based post production facilities and other companies needing 3D.

More examples of Tommy's 3D and motion graphics can be found on the  TV Videos  Page
