About

Hi there,

My name is Xabier and I am a CG Generalist and Nuke Compositor with experience in film, videogames and also in VR (both, real-time and rendered). In my spare time, I like to learn new skills and develop myself creating things, that’s why I have started learning Python and developing tools.

I’m currently working as a Nuke Compositor in MPC (London, UK), but I’m always open to hearing about interesting projects.

Please, do not hesitate to contact me, should you need any further information.

Regards,

Xabier Arrieta
