Recommendations

Ben Stanton

Lead Animator / Crystal Dynamics

I was one of Marvin’s direct managers during his time on the Avengers Project. We had a lot to complete in a very short amount of time and Marvin was vital to landing all we needed to land. He had to navigate a very technical gauntlet with learning an engine and pipeline in a very short amount of time, along with completing a myriad of animation tasks. We landed everything we were aiming for and Marvin was a huge aspect of that success. I’m happy to recommend Marvin for his animation skillset.

peter

Peter Deurloo

Game Director / Nixxes

Marvin is a very passionate aspiring animator who works incredibly hard to improve on his skills every single day.

Marvin was thrown in the deep-end with nigh impossible deadlines to hit, yet Marvin never ceased to lose his positive attitude and can-do mentality and managed to keep his head above water at all times.

Marvin is that guy that helps remind you that it’s great to work in games no matter how hard it can get at times.

justin

Justin van Luijk

Producer / Nixxes

I’ve met Marvin at Nixxes, where he delivered superb animation work for a specific game title in the field of in-game environment and characters.

Working with Marvin feels special. He’s a great colleague and a nice person with a good sense of humor. He’s a good addition to your team and is prepared to go for the extra mile.

I would definitely recommend Marvin for any job opportunity that matches his profile.
