What Our Students Are Saying

When I stumbled upon RedefineFX it was like a dream come true. I could start implementing what I learned in my work immediately and was able to wow my friends and take client work to that next level like I wanted to.

Genesis Williams3D Artist

I randomly came across Jesse’s tutorials and immediately knew I could do the work based on what he was showing. His straight to the point/relevant explanations are easy to follow. The client was amazed by the simulations and has led to more projects and better portfolio material. Thanks Jesse!

Jimm WagnerVFX Artist

Short, precise, and most importantly inspiring. Jesse's tutorials helped me understand how to setup simulations in an organized way but also how to combine them with particle textures to bring my work to the next level.
