Russ Gautier VFX Artist at Rebelway

RUSS GAUTIER

Russ Gautier is a Los Angeles-based motion designer, animator, and creative director specializing in design for technology, television, and feature film. His projects typically include depictions of futuristic technology (known as FUI), future-tech consulting, and title sequence & main title design. Some of his projects of note include Black Panther, Avengers: Endgame, Thor: Ragnarok, Spider-Man: Far From Home, and many others.
 
Russ’s process often involves equal parts technical and creative solutions, and as such he has been an avid Houdini user for several years. He has taught Houdini to graduate and undergrad students of the Computer Arts department at SVA, as well as acting as thesis advisor for many students during his tenure. His other tools of choice are Cinema 4D, Redshift, and After Effects/Adobe suite.
