Hello and thank you for visiting Halcyon Realms. I’m Vong yonghow, a CG artist from Singapore.

I  like animation, photography, film and pretty art books. I take some pictures every now and then.

I work as a Lighting technical director, creating visual effects for feature films. Some of the movies I’ve worked on include Rango, Transformers 3 & 4, Mission Impossible 4, The Avengers, Star Trek Into Darkness and Warcraft. ( my demoreel/CV is here. ) I’m currently based in Vancouver BC, Canada.

I stayed in Tokyo for six years studying film and then working on Otomo Katsuhiro’s Freedom at Sunrise Animation Studios. It was an awesome experience.

Please take a look around my blog and and if you like what you are seeing or reading you might want to consider subscribing to my rss feed, follow me on twitter or if you need to get in touch with me you can do so through my contact page.

Some trivia :

Here is a picture of Sunrise Animation Studio in Ogikubo, where I worked on Freedom Project.

I’m a manic fan of Paul Van Dyk ( PVD ), ChicaneThe Thrillseekers and Sir David Attenborough.
