David Hall

VFX Director, Worldspark Studios

David Hall loves teaching, exploding things, and teaching how to explode things. He is an outstanding addition to any effects team and does truly amazing work. He not only mastered the craft of 2D and 3D VFX but is also passionate about teaching and pushing his team forward.

This led to him working at a variety of prestigious studios like Petroglyph Games and Riot Games as a VFX artist, before working as Principal VFX Artist for Wildlife Studios and Hidden Leaf Games until finally becoming the VFX Director at Worldspark Studios.

When he is not making VFX or taking time with his family, he enjoys making other art too. It's nuts!
