Troy has been an animator in the DC area since 1993. Though he graduated with a business degree from UVA, he was always an artist since he was six years old. He is a principal at V! Studios and is currently serving the role as an Art Director/Lead Animator at NASA HQ working closely with the Science Mission Directorate. He has worked on numerous animations for clients such as MSNBC, FBI, Clark Construction, and many others.

Vuk Nikolic will give us an in-depth overview of developing scientific animations using 2-D and 3-D software.

Vuk Nikolic earned a Master of Science degree in Biology; evolving from a refined sense of the aesthetic, where he discovered his passion for creating photo-realistic 3-D images and animations. The evolution of both passions is synthesized in medical and scientific 3-D visualizations and production. He has completed 3-D and 2-D animation works for many clients such as National Geographic and History Channel.
