Rising Stars: Meet Connie Ho Xiang Ning

Today we’d like to introduce you to Connie Ho Xiang Ning.

Hi Connie, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
It was actually a weird beginning for me. I am originally from Malaysia and came to the States to study medicine around five years ago, but ended up in the film industry. It was a lot of influence from my sister who is an animator as well as being in LA.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
The first three years in college was a blur. I knew I wanted to be in the industry, but I wasn’t what exactly I wanted to do. I’ve tried storyboarding, concept art, motion design, etcetera, and nothing caught my eyes. Right at the end of my last year in school, I learnt about a 3d software called Houdini and instantly fell in love with it.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I am a CG artist currently working in a studio specializing in commercials, tv, and maybe film starting this year! 🙂 I’ve just started working around a little over a year ago, and I’ve participated/worked on in quite a bunch of commercials including a few Superbowl spots. Most of the time, I am responsible on lighting and rendering shots, however depending on projects, I will be running a whole shots. Which started out as an empty scene to finishing renders with the help from my supervisors.

Risk taking is a topic that people have widely differing views on – we’d love to hear your thoughts.
Fortunately, with the works I’ve been working on hasn’t required me to take any risk yet. However, my perspective on risk is that if it is unnecessary and avoidable, I’ll always find ways to work around it.
