1. Tell us a bit about yourself. Where are you from? What do you do for a living?

I am Deshan Ganheage from the island of Sri Lanks and reside in the town of Colombo.  I’m a 3D animator, motion graphics artist. I have my own company – dearts

How did you get started? Have you had any formal training?

Actually, I started in 2002, 13 years ago.  In that time, I started with 3D studio max and then learned After Effects by myself.  I joined VideoHive in September, 2013. It was really, really challenging to me. I worked at one of the leading event companies in Dubai  as a senior  3D visualizer + video editor + photographer.  During that time, I had no time to spend even with my family. I worked hard with VideoHive the first two months but unfortunately my first 7 projects were rejected.   I started to work with VideoHive 10 pm to 3 am every single day. Finally, I won the game.

Describe your creative process. What steps do you normally follow to create your files?

It is simple. I always try to do something simple.  First, I think of an idea, then I add little drawings as a story board.  Then, I find a great audio for my idea. Sometimes, my idea will change a bit with the audio.  Then, I make a deadline for the final result. Lastly, I work to achieve my goal.

What are your three favorite files, and why do you like them?

I like ” 160 Title Animation” . it is my file and also my turning point.

Photo Gallery on a Sunny Afternoon” by bluehatdesign . It is simple and elegant.

Pixity Land” by PixFlow. It is clean and has perfect animation.

What do you do in your spare time?

I like to play guitar, read history books , watch cooking programs and plan my future projects.
