  • Rudiger Kaltenhauser Head of 3D

    Head of 3D, Rudiger Kaltenhauser, originally joined Glassworks London in 2005 after finishing his studies at Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg with his award winning short 'Treibgut' (Siggraph animation theater). He soon became one of London's leading cgi artists specialising in character modelling and rendering, although his passion for the medium quickly led him to also excel at storyboarding, shoot supervision and project leading.

     

    When Glassworks Amsterdam launched in 2007 he was asked to help set up a department that would lead the field in this new market and has since expanded his skills to include the direction of fully CGI films. His passion and knowledge have led him to lead seminars at various conferences, and he continues to supplement his commercial work with self-directed projects.

     

    Rudiger has won various awards including a Cannes Lion in 2013 for Animation, a Best New Director nomination at the British Arrows Craft awards 2013 and a D&AD nomination 2014 for Animation.
