I’m a US Citizen pursuing a career in Visual Effects for Television and Film. Looking for opportunities to improve skills and expand professional network.

I graduated from Digital Animation and Visual Effects School at Universal Studios Orlando, FL and currently working at a DAVE school as a junior animator and compositing instructor.

I’m self-motivated, hard worker with enthusiastic personality, strong problem solving skills, have a good eye for color and attention to detail.

Prior to visual effects I’ve had pretty successful seventeen year career as a professional ballet dancer. Therefore as an artist, it is important for me to develop a broad set of art skills, I am in constant search trying expand my technical knowledge with various compositing and 3D packages and to gain more experience in the industry.

 

 

Here Are Testimonials From Some Of The People I Worked With

 

Andrey is a very talented artist and the work he did while a student at The DAVE School was always of the highest quality. Even though Andrey’s work was regularly superior, he was always humble and open to any critiques. I know that he will succeed in whatever he endeavors to accomplish. Besides from being very artistic and professional, Andrey is also a genuinely friendly person and would fit well into any environment. I whole-heartedly recommend Andrey Kasatsky
Michael Keith, Director of Career Services at The DAVE School (Linkedin)
Andrey is an exceptional and multi-talented artist. His discipline and motivation to hold himself, along with everyone else around him, to the highest possible standard is both inspiring and what sets him apart from the rest. I would absolutely love to work with him again in the future, and I’m positive he’d make a very valuable addition to any team.
Anthony Marigliano, Simulation Specialist (Linkedin)
Andrey is very driven and talented… Even outside of class he is always working on side projects and asks for feedback in order to make his work the best it can possibly be. When someone asks him for help, he is always eager to do so. He was an invaluable part of his class, and now that he has graduated I have no doubt that he will make it far in the industry.
