Hey there! I'm Jacob Slovak. I am a first-generation college student studying Animation at the University of Texas at Dallas. I am currently a Senior with a special interest in Lighting and Compositing for film and video games. As you'll see in my portfolio though, that is not all I do! I enjoy directing, creating captivating compositions, and photography! In addition to creating art, I currently work at a coffee shop as a barista. I hope you enjoy your time here on my website, and feel free to contact me via email with any questions, inquiries, or just to chat!
