Jon Holmes

Creative Technologist

I’m a digital artist and educator for film, games and VFX production. I am keen to collaborate with other filmmakers, designers and technicians in the above fields whilst developing my own portfolio. Alongside my work at the University of Lincoln and in the freelance digital media sector, I am a keen blogger and vlogger via my pseudonym The Curious Engine. I often post updates of projects and regularly share the skills, knowledge and experience that I have gathered over the last 15–20 years via audio/visual guides and discussions. My hope is to educate as well as inform by sharing practice and skills that are often hard to access outside of the industrial bubble.

For, I’m one of the creative technologists involved in the Lincoln­-based Innovation Lab.

I’m interested in VFX, cinematography and post-production editing and colour. My current passion is for 3D modelling and texture painting for both VFX and games production. I am a proud member of the co_Lab research group and have a keen interest in collaboration between students, staff and practitioners – right across Europe – and believe that the dissemination of practice based knowledge and information is vital to help young people exploit the exciting new opportunities emerging digital technologies afford them today.
