My name is Alex Ferreira Simoes and I'm a character animator originally from Sao Paulo - Brazil.
I'm currently working at Riot Games as a Senior Gameplay Character Animator for League of Legends, previously worked at Dreamworks Animation on the featured film The Bad Guys, Boss Baby 2 , Abominable and other projects. Before that I worked on some other featured films like Spies in Disguise (Blue Sky Studios), Hotel Transylvania 3 (Sony Imageworks) and several others as a freelance artist.
Before working with Featured Films I worked on several TV Series, Games, Short Films and TV ads, which was very important for me to learn all the different workflows and needs for each different industry.
With the Animation Flow and the Academy my goal is to help and inspire all animators from the industry, doesn't matter your level or where you are in your journey! I hope you enjoy the initiative and feel free to contact me anytime!
Alex´s reviews are a must have for animators who want to improve their skill and sharpen their eye for animation. His feedback has helped me enormously. Not only because his comments are incredibly insightful and clear, but also because he goes in depth with his critique; if needed, Alex will point out key areas which need improvement, which sometimes might lead to big changes. But, all of these notes are with the sole purpose of creating the best possible end result. He has a very positive and uplifting attitude and also will spend the time needed reviewing your work in full. Besides being an amazing animator, Alex is an incredible teacher and mentor, and I couldn’t recommend him more, specially if your goal is to excel at animation and improve your eye and skill.
The feedback was always very detailed and made my perception of the animation much more clear giving me a better idea of how to approach my next shots.
Alex has been part of my professional life since the very beginning, I could even say that he plays a big part of the reason why I became an animator.
It is always fun, innovating, inspirational and a huge boost on my motivation to have a chance to learn from and with him.
Every time I think about taking animation classes or mentorship, he is definitely the first person that comes to my mind!
