Hello, I’m Brian Tolle

Filmmaker & Visual Effects Artist

Since 2005, I have been working professionally as a Visual Effects Artist, beginning in the camera and animation tracking department.

I quickly started working on set, at the intersection of filming and post production, wrangling the data need to create post visual effects.

Now, I bring my knowledge and experience to real time visual effects and set extensions for filmmaking and XR, with a focus on Unity and Unreal Engine.
