About

My name is Alex Monteiro. I am a senior 3d artist specializing in technical direction.

I have over 14 years of professional experiences working as a lead artist in the following roles; technical direction, animation,modeling,lighting, shading, effects and compositing. The last 8 yrs I have been working remotely from my home studio using programs like skype and various instant messaging software to communicate and complete projects.

My career began in Boston, while enrolled at The Boston Architectural School, as head of the 3D department of a 120-person architectural firm. In this role I was responsible for the department’s high end 3D projects. Working with the architects and designers to implement their schematic design ideas into 3D form, as well as integrating the high end design work into their client budgets were just some of my responsibilities.

Then, in 1995 I decided that I wanted a greater challenge and launched my freelance career specializing in the Architectural field where I honed not only my creative and technical skills, but also my client service skills. Thus began a new creative journey which is still in process.

In 1999, I was awarded the prestigious honor of becoming one of only 16 elite Discreet Training Specialists (DTS) worldwide who are certified to represent the world renowned Discreet Software Corporation,aka Autodesk, the world leader in 3D software development. This certification allowed me to broaden my expertise to include many other industries in addition to the Architectural field.

In 2001, I  co-authored Mastering 3D Studio Max marking a new turning point in my career.

That same year, I moved to Connecticut where I opened my own virtual 3D studio which has now evolved into Studio-X. Over the years I have worked not only in architecture but also accident reconstruction, engineering, film, retail, games, web design and TV and I have had the opportunity to work for some of the biggest and best names in industry including: Adidas, Cadillac, Gucci, Legos, Mobil, Gillette, Cirque Du Soleil, Verizon, Cartoon Network, HBO, NBC, Bravo, IFC (Independent Film Channel), Sikorsky, Lockheed Martin, Fleet Bank, HSBC, Talbot’s, …and more

I try to combine being highly professional, my years of experience and diverse knowledge of the state of the art software and cutting edge communication tools, as a all in one solution for your creative needs.

I am available to work remotely or on location

Please contact me for my current availability, day-rates, if you want to collaborate, or have an exciting project for me to work on!

Cheers
