Ahoy! In case you’ve stumbled in here, lost and confused, my name’s Nathaniel Caauwe and this is some stuff I’m not embarrassed to show. My creative endeavors have gone from music (violin for eight years, still play a little now) to traditional art, digital art, photography, filmmaking, visual effects, and web design and development.

I spent nearly two years developing and maintaining WordPress themes or building client websites for a marketing firm in my hometown. But I spent many nights and weekends working from home as a freelance visual effects artist, specializing in rotoscoping, paint, and compositing. This reminded me how much I missed VFX, and with client work picking up, I will be resuming the freelance life in December 2015.

Anywho, feel free to poke around. I have some artwork, behind the scenes on some of my films, a repository of my videos, and a photography gallery. Enjoy!
