Artist Spotlight: Bruce Branit

Visual Effects Artist Bruce Branit uses LightWave 3D to create extremely credible imaginary scenes and events for film, television and the Web

Sun 09 Aug 2015

The combination of LightWave 3D and ready access to powerful IP networks enabled Bruce Branit to become a World Builder in his own personal life. Rather than continue living in Los Angeles—where he moved to work on visual effects for Star Trek Voyager and Deep Space Nine, among other shows—he was able to move his young family to Kansas City, MO where the cost of living is substantially lower. “LightWave 3D lets me produce films and Web serials that use visual effects in a way that’s unexpected for a micro-budget project. That’s why I’m basing the future growth of my company on this platform,”  says Branit.

Every artist dreams of one day creating his or her own masterpiece – a work that will be admired by many and talked about far into the future. But one 3D artist, Zsolt Ekho Farkas of Budapest, Hungary, did in fact create a masterpiece (actually, a re-creation of one) as well as a range of other digital pieces. And while his art is diverse – running the gamut from realistic, to painterly, to cartoony – his tool set is not. For all his projects, Farkas uses LightWave 3D.
