The TEAM

Robert Okker

Owner / Head of VFX

When he was a young Robert had a moment of profound awakening. Until that moment he had never known why he was put on this earth. But, as soon as he saw the T1000 literally have meltdown in Terminator 2, he knew what he had to do. It was VFX or die trying.
As soon as Robert was old enough he stole his mother’s toilet brush and set out to find a job, any job – but, as the only tool he had in his arsenal was a toilet brush, it looked like it would have to be toilet cleaning. Robert didn’t care. As long as he got cash to spend on VFX study books and skateboards, he was as happy as a pig in... well, you get the picture.

His total devotion to VFX saw him score an internship with VFX magician Reinier van Brummelen. Under Brummelen’s tutelage for the next four years Robert had the time of his life, soaking up everything he could. Next, he took time out to perfect soft imaging and the rendering side of 3D. Okkie became a master of the entire realm of 3D and all he could see around him. Empires crumpled to dust under his gaze…ok, not really but c’mon, it’s VFX – use your imagination.
