My name is Mikael Hällström, a self-taught 3D artist with more than 12 years in the industry. During this time I have worked at some really great companies with everything from design visualization to VFX supervision on the set of commercials. Working in small studios has led me to become proficient in all parts of the creation process, from modeling and texturing, to rigging, animation, lighting, rendering and post production.

I have worked closely with designers and product managers within the Automotive, Industrial and Telecom industries. Producing 3D renderings, made up of stills and animation to be used in everything from evaluation material in the design process to final marketing material. This helps drive sales, even before the product has entered production. One such project was the New Volvo XC90 First Edition, launched using only our 3D images. Nearly two thousand cars were reserved and all sold out within the first 47 hours.

My most enjoyable projects are the ones containing film and animation. Working as a VFX Supervisor on set and doing the post production on the New Volvo XC90 Seasons commercial was one of the most rewarding projects I have worked on.
