Ryan Maddox aka MiddleFingerRings



“My obsession with visual arts began at an early age. Probably since the first time I picked up a pencil! I became interested in animation in primary school, drawing frame-by-frame animations in a rudimentary piece of software called Animation Shop Pro. In high school I saved up enough to buy Flash, a more sophisticated 2D animation program. My creations became increasingly elaborate and ambitious, and before long I knew that filmmaking would become the driving force in my career. I followed through by undertaking a Bachelor of Digital Media degree at UNSW Art & Design. It was there that I began my journey into 3D visual effects. I landed an internship at a boutique studio in Sydney, where I greedily absorbed as much knowledge as possible. Soon I had a job at Method Studios, and later Alt.vfx where I was thrust straight into the deep end of photoreal visual effects for high-end clients.”
