Resume | Touseef Ahmed ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Contact Info Location: Manama Bahrain Phone: 0097334019699 Email: toujee.gfx@gmail.com URL: http://www.coroflot.com/touseef vimeo.com/toujee ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Summary I spent my childhood and my teenage years immersed in comic books, movies and video games. I've learned to daydream and imagine fresh and new worlds and lived the adventures of my favorite heroes, absorbed the soundtracks and reliving those sequences in my head I wholly understood how much these art forms are complete, evocative and ultimately my true source of inspiration. I started this career in the hope that one day I would be part of the collective who gave me so much then and still do today. I want to continue that trend. I decided to specialize in Compositing as it is the culmination of all of this. I love not only giving life to a piece, but bringing it to a fine polish. On my path I have learned the discipline, enthusiasm, patience and endurance necessary to complete a job as well as the absolute importance of cooperation for its success. • Formulated and implemented creative strategies and campaigns for some of the most successful global brands including Mobilink Jazz, Safeguard, National Food Limited, Tiger Biscuit, Head & Shoulders, Continental Biscuits, Pampers, Tapal and Ariel. • Exceptional creative talent with experience in all forms of traditional and non-traditional media. • Provided outstanding leadership as proven in consistently directing and motivating creative teams towards communications solutions that achieve both client and agency business objectives. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Technical Proficiency Areas of Expertise Motion Graphics (Expert, 14 years experience) Digital Compositing (Expert, 9 years experience) Character Rigging (Intermediate, 5 years experience) Conceptual Art (Intermediate, 5 years experience) Directing (Intermediate, 3 years experience) Creative Direction ( 2 years experience) Classical Animation Foundamentals (Beginner, 1 year experience) Software and Tools Adobe Photoshop (Expert, 10 years experience) Adobe After Effects (Expert, 14,years experience) Davinci Resolve (Advanced, 5 years experience) Adobe Premiere (Intermediate, 5 years experience) Autodesk Maya 2012 (Beginner, 2 years experience) Autodesk 3D Studio Max (Beginner, 3 years experience) Sony Vegas 5 (Beginner, 1 year experience) Mental Ray (Beginner, 1 year experience) Chaos Group V-Ray (Beginner, 2 years experience) Zbrush (Intermediate, 5 years experience) Windows (Expert, 15 years experience) Mac OS X (Advanced, 10 years experience) Wacom Tablets DSLR Cameras Techniques Rotoscoping Plate Cleaning Matchmoving Camera Tracking Camera Projection Chroma Keying Compositing Matte Painting Set Extensions Colour Grading and Correction Work History Company: B Media Production Bahrain Background: Working in strong leadership positions as director creative, animator, compositor, and director, I have developed a unique and dynamic skill set that I pride myself on integrating into all of my endeavors.
