Riley McLaren

Hello, I’m Riley McLaren, and welcome to my website.

Here you’ll be able to see heaps of my past work, ranging from film, motion graphics, editing, 2D and 3D animation, graphic design to even a spot of photography.

In 2016, I finished my Bachlor of Creative Arts in Animation and Motion Capture at Deakin University. I’m very experienced in the pre-production, production and particularly post-production of films and animations. I have made many promotional videos and animations for Deakin University, The Song Room, Kaleidoscope VR, and the secondary school Gippsland Grammar.

You can find me on Facebook, YouTube and LinkedIn.
