NICK PEARCE – MANAGING DIRECTOR / FOUNDER

Nick Pearce

Nick is an award-winning writer and game developer whose career began with a passion project mod – The Forgotten City, after reaching notoriety with his first Skyrim mod that reached 2 million downloads. Before developing games, Nick worked as a legal and strategy advisor to a multi-billion dollar tech company. ​

Eventually Nick set into making The Forgotten City, by using Character Creator 3, iClone 7 and Unreal Engine, allowing him to win an Australian National’s Writer Guild Award, a 2018 Unreal UnderDog Award, and an Unreal Dev Grant among others.

“I was told it was going to cost a fortune. – That it was going to be about a $500,000 to record the high-quality facial motion capture animations for about 2,000 lines of dialogue. Fortunately, I discovered Character Creator 3 and iClone 7, and was able to create our own facial motion capture animations for about 1% of the cost of traditional facial motion capture.”

I’ve learned communication technology and I have been working as a freelancer for 6 years.

Philipp Reichling

My name is Phil, I am 30 years old and I from Germany. As long as I can remember, I have always used Computers, since DOS. (of course the main reason was to play video games.) I don’t remember when was the first time I tried to change something in a game, but I remember that I was young  and I was hooked even though I failed at many modding projects.

I decided to study 3D modelling for about 1.5 years. Eventually I started working on our game – Photonic Distress after meeting my colleague Irakli Gagnidze on the UE4 Marketplace. We checked YouTube videos and we saw a Character Creator (CC) video. As tired as we were, we decided to risk it and we bought Character Creator and iClone 7. It took us a while to get the results we wanted, but finally our game was filled with CC Characters!

“I was not happy with the final character results of Mixamo Fuse because the faces weren’t unique enough. Then we discovered Character Creator.” – Philipp Reichling

Matt Champneys

I am 51 years old and my creativity has manifested itself in various ways throughout my life. I made films as a teenager with my Super 8 camera. Later I became a singer/songwriter and performed with my band.

Eventually I settled into a career as a graphic designer and web developer.  As a hobby I became a Halloween haunter and that passion grew into quite a production.

Our annual Halloween walk through attracts thousands of visitors every year. In 2011, I began to do 3D projection mapping on my house as part of my Halloween decorating.  The videos I created went viral on YouTube with more than a million views. The animations I am able to create with iClone have been critical to my success.  I have since turned my passion for projection mapping into a business, helping other people do the same.

Cameron Hines

Hello, my name is Cameron Hines, I’m from Atlanta Georgia and I love to create animations, whether it’s 2D or 3D. I went to school as a web designer, but deep down I knew animation was my passion. I wanted to switch degrees but halfway through my web design degree I couldn’t afford to. So, I told myself I would learn animation on my own.

At the time, iClone 5 just came and it was affordable enough for me to start creating decent 3D animation. Growing up I loved cartoons and video games, so I always wondered how artist would create them. Now with iClone 7 and CrazyTalk Animator 3, and Cloud Animator (CLA), I feel like animators can now create amazing art, on a tight budget. My goal is to be part of the many artists at Reallusion Marketplace , who’ve made a successful career in animation.
