I am Santiago Montesdeoca Ph.D. (Singapore), a hybrid artist/engineer/researcher with profound interest and expertise in non-photorealistic and expressive rendering methodologies. My recent Ph.D. research has led me to publish award-winning papers in the field and to present my work at SIGGRAPH’s Real-Time Live! and Pixar Animation Studios.
My personal aim is to empower artists to fully express themselves in any style using 3D computer animation. Therefore, I develop customized technology, optimized for real-time art-direction to alleviate animation workflows and enable individual narratives through unique looks.
In my free time I enjoy dancing, eating/preparing delicious food, taking photographs of moments and places, traveling, watching/imagining/creating movies, snowboarding, playing a game here and there, playing guitar and being outside under the sunlight.
