About
Nick Aberson (1985) is a Rotterdam based VFX artist and filmmaker.
He started making movies at the age of 16, dreaming of studying at the film academy. In 2011 he graduated from the Willem de Kooning Academy as an audiovisual designer with his movie ‘Collins Cosmos’, a film where he combined his interests for escapism and science fiction.
After graduating Nick started working on commercial and artistic projects as a director, cinematographer, 
composer, editor and producer, often together in one project.
He worked for clients as Nike, Francois Geurds, In de keuken van Floris, Het Proces, Joseph Guy, Showroom MAMA, Magnum and WDKA. This is where he started exploring Blender and applying this in commercial projects.
In 2016 he switched to becoming a 3D artist, working with Blender and loving this software. This led to a job he landed at Submarine Studios, where he worked as a 3D/VFX artist for Undone, a 2D animation series directed by Hisko Hulsing and created by the writers behind Bojack Horseman. Undone will be released in autumn 2019 on Amazon Prime.
Nick is now focused on looking for new projects with a high artistic level where he can contribute as a 3D/VFX artist.
Besides working as a 3D artist, Nick spends time making music as Minor Planet Magdalena (soundcloud link).
