At age 23, Urs was quickly snapped up by Cutting Edge where his distinct eye for detail and his design competencies made him an ideal VFX operator. After being in the number one Flame suite at Cutting Edge, Urs joined the team at Alt.vfx, where he can collaborate with some of the country’s best and create exceptional & astounding work. Even though his infectious enthusiasm and earnest hard work has surmounted the expectations of clients, he still likes to keep his trusty copy of After Effects next to him. Just to make sure he can ‘add a little extra’ to everything he works on.
