FROM CONCEPT ARTIST TO CEO - ELLIE COOPER

ELLIE COOPER: THE UNREAL JOURNEY TO BECOMING THE FOUNDER OF ATHENA PRODUCTIONS.

 

In this episode of The VFX Process, we had the pleasure of welcoming Ellie Cooper, a talented individual with vast industry experience, to share with us her journey to becoming the Creative Director and founder of Athena Productions.

Ellie's passion for art was inspired, at a young age, by a photoshopped horse jumping over a fountain. However, it was during her time at university, where she began to use software like 3ds Max and ZBrush, that she incorporated 3D elements into her concept art.


Over the years, Ellie has had the opportunity to work with renowned companies such as Disney, MPC, SONY, Ubisoft, Apple TV, Paramount+, and even KFC. One of her exceptional creations, in particular, captured the attention of EPIC Games' Instagram team, which helped elevate her work's success.

Through completing the Unreal Fellowship program, Ellie was able to enhance her realism and develop her project, 'The Heist Room.' Ellie's passion lies in storytelling through art, and she hopes to produce a short film in the future.
