Hi, my name is Marvin Kaltenbach and this is my portfolio website!
I’m a technical/VFX artist and programmer from Germany with a deep interest in modern real-time applications and a passion for video game development. In today’s society art and science are intrinsically linked together. Finding someone who is good at one of them is easy. Merging these areas can be tough. Lucky for you, I specialize in both of them.
After finishing my B.Sc. in Computer Science (∅ 2,3) in 2016, I then successfully graduated from my M.A in Intermedia Design in 2019 (∅ 1,0).
Using not only my academic training but also experience from practical projects and self-study, I’m always pushing myself to learn state of the art tools, algorithms and designs.
Art and Science. If you are looking for a person who can work with and support both departments, then you found someone who is capable of doing so.
Going beyond the horizon, overcoming my own faults and finally being part of a better future is what drives me. Constantly pushing my skills further to the edge, helps me to improve myself on a daily basis.
Since I was lucky enough to specialize in both art and science, I have a wide set of skills fitting into nearly every modern media production. However, developing and adapting to new ‘terrain’ is where my true strength comes into play.
I consider myself a person who works responsible with available resources and someone who (most of the time) knows what he’s doing and therefore can defend the work that was done. In a time where nearly everything is available in a dozen different versions, it is important to filter out what you really need and meets your requirements.
Teamwork is key to every big enterprise! The lone wolf might be a somewhat romantic concept but it is not how economy and society works. I like to reimagine the phrase ‘being a cog in a wheel’. I think it is not about being a small, insignificant part, no, it is about an identity formed by a group of people who work together so well that the outcome is something remarkable.
