Hi! My name is Isabela Nava and I'm an aspiring visual effects compositor and motion graphics artist. I'm hoping to utilize my passion for both art and film to be able to tell stories in the most creative way imaginable.
I am currently a senior studying at the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York City for my BFA in Computer Art, Animation, and Visual Effects.
My long-term goal is to be a VFX compositor for movies and TV shows as well as a freelance motion graphics artist. As a VFX artist, I want the ability to immerse the audience in an entirely different universe that dismisses the distinction between fantasy and reality. As a motion graphics artist, I'd like to exercise my creative skill set to create engaging visuals through animation, graphics, and text.
I am currently back in school, studying Computer Art, Animation, and Visual Effects at SVA in New York City. During the school year I'll be working on my VFX short film "Butterfly Effect".

I'll also be spending my free time contributing as a graphic designer and motion graphic artist for the newly produced INCRadio New Jersey Satellite Studio.
I recently worked as a VFX intern for the media production company Radical Media during the spring and summer of 2020. During my time there, I worked with a team of people in producing a project called Illuminarium Experiences, an immersive safari attraction set at a venue in Atlanta, Georgia. As an intern, I helped build concepts for the floor designs of a number of locations. This required compositing, photobashing, and 3D visualization. I also spent some time doing roto work for a number of footages.
During the summer of 2019, I also worked as a Motion Graphics artist for Lotus Pictures, animating graphics for several projects at a time. Later that fall, I worked as a freelance Motion Graphics artist for Flottweg. designing a library of animated graphics to be used for their booth at WEFTEC 2019 that promoted their new water purification product, Xellator.
I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Wren Weichman— one of the VFX artists behind the videos at Corridor Digital, a production studio and entertainment company most well-known for their creative YouTube content. As an aspiring VFX artist myself, I saw this as a wonderful opportunity to seek advice and input from a fellow VFX artist who not only did the work professionally but for fun as well.
