Visual Effects Artist for DuPont Sustainable Solutions

Caleb Lambert is a visual effects artist for DuPont Sustainable Solutions in Virginia Beach, Virginia. He creates computer imagery for clients, utilizing animation, 3D modeling, particle systems, lighting, texturing, and compositing. “My career doesn’t feel like a job. I would be doing this at home in my free time because I enjoy it,” he says.

Caleb is proud to have earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Media Arts & Animation. “During [my time in school], I not only learned about software and skillsets, but I leaned about myself and my potential.” He adds that his inspiration is Georges Méliès. “I can’t even sum up how much he has inspired me. The man is a legend, and the father of visual effects.” Caleb believes that 3D printing will continue to impact the industry. “[It] has really taken hold of the imaginations of millions of people, and with that comes advances in 3D scanning equipment and software. I see 3D scanning becoming the standard for capturing the geometry of assets to be utilized for post-production purposes—whether it is a film set, and actor, or a prop.”

Caleb, who in 2015 earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Media Arts & Animation from The Art Institute of Virginia Beach, says that his education taught him time management and how to deal with tight deadlines. “You can come into a job and not know too much about this or that program and that’s ok. But if you do not have the skills to deliver the work when it’s needed, [you will not succeed].” He recommends that current students stay focused and “go hard or go home. This industry is highly competitive and highly stressful. If you want to remain on top of the food chain, keep learning new software and techniques.”
