Freelance Technical Artist

  • “Our company hired Ofer to develop a specific pipeline tool for 3dsmax. Ofer's work was very professional throughout the entire process, from prototyping and conceptualizing, up to bug fixing and revisions. He provided innovative technical solutions and worked closely with our technical directors to implement them. I would definitely consider Ofer for future projects.”

  • “I came to Ofer with a urgent request to generate a maxscript within a few days. He was very professional in his responses to me, clearly demonstrating his expertise in the 3D technical domain. His turnaround time to deliver the script was very impressive, and the final product was extremely well put together including clear commenting and structure. Overall I would highly recommend Ofer for any technical 3D work and I plan on contacting him again if/when the need arises.”
    Jon Burns,
    hired Ofer as a Freelance technical 3D in 2010
  • “Ofer recently completed a job for us here at hi5.
    As soon as I sent him the outline of the project he had so many questions and really showed interest in our project. I was impressed at how quickly he was able to give me a working version to test with. The suggestions he had for the tool were outstanding as well, it made the tool much more easy to work with on my end.
    All of the bugs/issues I sent back to him were easily handled as he is a top shelf maxscript technician. If I ever run into a situation where I need a tool written in maxscript, I will contact Ofer above all else.
    BTW, Ofer works remotely and it was never an issue, never felt like he was out of touch, or hard to get a hold of. Highly recommend.”

He works straight to the point, very consciously, that's why it's impressive how fast he answers our demand always doing the right job and sometimes even better than what we expected. I would highly recommend him as a very good professional but especially because it's very clear that he knows very well the script language.”
