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 in New York City for my BFA in Computer Art, Animation, and Visual Effects. As a student of this department, I was fortunate enough to be given the chance to dip my toe in several waters that ranged from the entire pipeline of 3D animation to the technical aspects of 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.
Originally born in the Philippines, my family moved to the United States in October 2009. Since then, we've lived in New Jersey until I decided to pursue an education in a creative field and applied to the School of Visual Arts in New York. I've since been staying in Manhattan while I finish studying for my BFA and will hopefully continue working in arguably the busiest city in the world doing what I love.
WHERE I'M FROM
