James Chretien is working as a 3D Animator at OneSubsea in Houston, Texas. He works with a team of animators to execute client requests for ROV (remotely operated underwater vehicle) studies, design studies, and animations in a 3D environment. “I enjoy being able to use my degree and work in a creative environment. The people I work with are extremely talented,” he says.
Casey’s creative inspirations include movies, music, nature, experiences, and stories.
He recommends that current students maintain a positive attitude and remain willing to learn. “Be respectful of yourself and others. Always perform at your absolute best—this will enable you to grow.”
Casey, who in 2013 earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Media Arts & Animation from The Art Institute of San Antonio, says that his education helped to develop his knowledge and skill set in animation. “Along with the mentorship I received [in] business relations, I now feel confident and capable venturing out in the visual media field.”
