3D artist and compositor, Jeanette Vera has joined the crew of Athena Studios as visual effects artist. Vera had worked with Athena previously on a freelance basis, before leaving to work at The Base Studio in Foster City for a year. While at Base, she made VFX contributions to such hit films as Captain America, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, The Smurfs, Marvel’s The Avengers, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and most recently, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. She left Base to return to Athena Studios full-time.

“We’re thrilled to have Jeanette re-join our team, this time on a permanent basis,” said Jon V. Peters, founder, Athena Studios. “Her expertise encompasses a wide breadth of modeling, compositing, match-moving and animation skills; critical talents for a smaller studio like ours to be able to offer to clients. While her primary expertise may be hard surface modeling, she also has a tremendous understanding of organics.”

“When I saw Toy Story at the age of five, I knew I wanted to be an artist and work in the film industry,” Vera said. “I set my sights on a career that would make my dream a reality. I studied animation and visual effects at Ex’pression College for Digital Arts, where I also acquired a passion for 3D modeling. My specialty is hard surface and environmental modeling. I’m having the time of my life working within this dynamic industry.”
