More about the presenter:
Daniel Zinck hails from the rolling hills and Amish communities of central Pennsylvania. Growing up on a farm he began to develop a passion for the entertainment industry and as he got older he started to pursue all things creative. Becoming unsatisfied by his surroundings, he decided to pack up everything he could fit in his car and move to Orlando to attend Full Sail University. He attended school with an open-mind and tried to learn as much about the computer animation industry as he could. After graduation he knew there would not be much work in Pennsylvania so he moved to Texas to work at Motus Digital. He later got the opportunity to further pursue his dreams by becoming a Texture Artist Apprentice at Reel FX. He has been at Reel FX for a few years and has worked on a lot of the high profile projects they have produced and that are currently in production.
