Hello! My name is Alex Voutsinas. I am currently an MFA Animation student at the University of California, Los Angeles. I am very interested in 3D character animation and character design. I am currently working on my first 3D film in Maya with an original story about 2 vastly different characters who create a world and communicate using American Sign Language.

My goal is to breathe life into these imaginated characters by building my skillset in character animation and acting. I hope you enjoy my website (coded and designed by me) and please come back for updates!
