About Corey Bastiaans

Since my childhood, I have been compelled to draw. Throughout my life, I have never stopped creating artwork and have strove to push my limits and improve my techniques.

When I was sixteen years old, I took a short animation course and learned the techniques of traditional animation. I practiced making pencil tests in my spare time through the next few years off and on. When I was eighteen, I created a short 30 second cartoon for my High School art credit and won the Maples Collegiate staff award for art. When I graduated, I made a small effort to get work as an artist at Disney, but lacking experience I gave up on this dream and resigned to do artwork in my spare time. I worked odd jobs over the next few years and lacked direction until I was about twenty one, when I bought a computer and started learning 3d in my spare time.

For the past ten years or so, I have been dedicated to learning the tools of 3d Artwork particularly for film. I landed a job at a small software company as their creative director. There, I was able to hone my skills at web site design and was able to create several animated intros for interactive cd roms that we produced. After 3 years, it became time for me to leave and venture into the industry that I wanted to make my career, the film industry.

I now live in Vancouver Canada, and work in the visual effects industy working on television series, commercials and film.
