A note from Jesse
I grew up in the Czech Republic dreaming of living in Los Angeles and working as a visual effects artist. At 23 years old, that dream came true for me when I got hired as an FX artist at Resistance VFX in California, where I got to participate in the creation & delivery of VFX shots for Michael Bay’s TV Show Black Sails. At that point in my career, I was already making more from freelance 3D projects than I was at the job, so I’ve decided to start my own studio and had my first upper 6-figures year at 24 years old. The next logical step for me was to start RedefineFX and start teaching everything I’ve learned on my journey to young creatives who share the same dream.
