About me

Hello! My name is Yuo Tengara.
After graduating from University of California, Irvine, I attended Gnomon School of Visual Effects and discovered my passion in lighting and look development. I became fascinated with those two areas because they establish the style and the tone of the world, which is a big part of storytelling. My dream is to light and to look dev for movies and commercials that will inspire others.

I really enjoy working on close up shots and doing grungy texture. In my spare time, I like to do sketches of characters and search for inspiring photos.
