Concept Artist, Matte-Painter and Illustrator, Grant Regan
Hi, my name is Grant Regan. I am a concept artist, matte-painter, storyboard artist, key-frame artist, retoucher, illustrator and one-time art director with a proven track record in the fields of previsualisation and post-production for film, TV, advertising and games (try saying all that 10-times quickly!)
Sydney-born and bred with 15 years of professional experience. For a decade and until early 2016 I lived in Oslo, Norway (after somehow taking a wrong-turn near Mascot) where I worked on a number of major and awarding-winning and critically acclaimed Norwegian film, animation and games productions. Along the way I also worked on concepts, key-frames and storyboards for TV commercials, and illustrated the odd book-cover or three.
My IMDB filmography can be found here.
Having learned the language sufficiently to ask for directions, I returned to Australia and I'm now based in Melbourne. Nonetheless, I have and still work with clients abroad, including some based in Norway, Sweden, Belgium and the UK.
Before I could walk, I drew (admittedly badly (both walking and drawing) but hey, you've got to begin somewhere!). I've always had a passion for the creation and communication of a coherent and striking idea or story-telling through visual mediums - I just didn't know it back then and couldn't articulate it if I did. I enjoy relating a story or idea through imagery that excites, engages and moves the viewer, and being a part of the process of bringing an idea or concept to life is a process that I love.
Recent clients include KCC, Passion Pictures, StartVR, Ink Project and Paradox Films, Norway.
As creativity and working with my hands are in my blood it finds the oddest of outlets. Over the past few years for instance I've taken to hand-building bicycles including the the fabrication of the frames. I'm currently in the process of building a workshop as a side-project. This dovetails well with my love for cycling (and it means you never have to buy a bike).
I look forward to hearing from you and working closely to bring your vision to life. I am available for freelance, contract and full-time employment and my CV is available upon request.
If you're looking for a freelancer with the ability and experience to bring your ideas to life, don't hesitate to drop me a line!
