( ‘The Higher Institute of Professional Drawing’)
Diploma in animation
Hello there! My name is Sebastião Lopes and I am from Lisbon, Portugal.
After finishing high school, I decided to study Management and Marketing. In the meantime I kept sculpting characters in clay and making some stop motion animations. By the end of the first year of college, I discovered that I wanted to become an animator and so I decided to enroll in an animation course in Madrid, Spain, where I studied for 4 years.
Since then, I’ve focused more on 3D animation and rigging and have worked on several projects for different studios and clients, more often with a commercial direction, but always feeding on my creative ambitions. Both personally and professionally, I have been focusing on working alongside great artists and people, creating movies that entertain and inspire. I am always looking to improve, to do better, and to make it fun!
