My Name is Jan Piccart, I’m a freelance VFX Compositor based in Berlin, Germany.
Since my childhood I have a strong fascination for images and sound, which dominated my studies since the age of 16. I learned Photography from the very basics on, shooting, developing and printing images in black and white. The short films I made during my film studies were inspired by my love for apocalyptic movies, electronic music and architecture. During film school, I taught myself some visual effects skills, since no such classes were given at the time. I graduated in 2008 with a Masters degree in Audiovisual Arts and moved to Berlin pursuing a career in Visual Effects.
Born and raised in Belgium, my native language is Dutch. I’m fluent in German, English and have basic knowledge of French.
