Adedunmola Olanrewaju

VFX artist turnt MVDM Grad Student. Hello I’m Adedunmola Peter Olanrewaju, my friends call me Ade. I've always been interested in moving images on the silver screen since i was a young lad. Growing up in The Ivory Coast, I would spend my summer vacations figuring out how to program very basic fighting and air combat games using Qbasic on my father’s desktop computer that had roughly about 1mb of ram. Fast Forward to High School in Maryland and studying French Literature and Property management in College while self teaching myself 3D animation, it hit me this could be a possible career option. I decided to move to Los Angeles and follow my lifelong dream of working on Hollywood movies. Eight years later and I've had the opportunity to have worked on some pretty cool TV Shows, Commercials and Movies including Game Of Thrones, Avengers, Captain America, and an Oreo commercial to name a few. I hope to be able to contribute some of my professional career experience and technical skills to the IE Film and Television Industry club. Can’t wait to meet you all!

Maya Mansour

From Lebanon. Having had had experience in screenwriting, my interest mainly lands on creating characters; their psychology and their ‘being’ in the cinematic world. Sometimes what words can’t tell, shots can. It is fascinating for me to see it all come together as one language; the words, the shots, the colors... For that, I involve myself in screenplay and production as a whole as well. I offer knowledge in character forming, screenplay structure, and production management.

Omira Nassir

Just an over glorified Production Assistant tired of making coffee runs for onset directors. I've spent the last 8 years between Los Angeles and New York working at places such as VIACOM, The Walt Disney Company, the NBA and the United Nations. I am currently a Graduate Student in Visual and Digital Media excited to expand my creative skills in the art of storytelling and content creation. As a Coordinator for IE's Film and Television Club, I hope we can provide opportunities for those ready to swan-dive into this mad industry, where the personalities are animated and visions become reality. Hi, my name is Omira (Oh-My-Ruh) and I look forward to meeting you.
