Christian Jelen

Please allow me to introduce myself: my name is Christian Jelen, I am a London based freelance VFX supervisor, Cinematic artist and Maya/UE Generalist working for the film, games and music industry

You can download my CV here , feel free to browse through some of my highlights here and check out my reels here

A detailed video of the services I offer with examples can be found here.

Recent projects include working as a VP supervisor for the CT/ Arri Stage in London and joining the Epic Unreal Virtual Production Fellowship, including directing a short film. I also worked on pre- and post production of the PlayStation 5 game “Horizon Forbidden West” and supervised a cinematic trailer for “Arizona Sunshine 2” using UE.  

With three decades of practical film production experience, I have witnessed the growth of visual effects from the traditional special effects techniques to today’s digital effects and real time graphics. I have extensive experience across various disciplines including Animation, Design, Compositing, 3d, On Set Supervising and Directing. In the past I have also successfully helped my clients with script breakdowns, scheduling and recruiting.

“Christian naturally has an extremely positive outlook to life which is also reflected in his work. He is super friendly, very patient and extremely humble which makes him a pleasure to work with.”

It was always very important to me to share my knowledge, which led to teaching courses on vfx and animation at Westminster University, City Lit Institute and London Metropolitan University.  I have also published teaching materials on Buddhism and Democracy.
