Jordi studied Architecture in Barcelona and also worked in software engineering and animation before he left Barcelona to join Jim Henson’s Creature shop, The Mill, Realise Studio and Glassworks. The eye for structure and creating effects that are grounded in physical reality is very much the driving force behind his approach. His craft and problem solving abilities have helped many directors and agencies win awards and recognition, and his own contribution has also been noticed with multiple awards.
After 10 years at The Mill Jordi eagerness to reinvent the way to design and craft visual effects has led him to find his own voice, ultimately taking him on an incredible journey to Glassworks where worked together with some of the best visual effects artists, pushing the boundaries of what is possible mixing old film techniques with the very latest cutting edge approaches.
