HEROES of the DAY:

Michel Rondberg

Co-Founder, 3D Visualization Pipeline TD, Audio Engineer

Born in Tiel, The Netherlands, Michel's talent in music was discovered as early as age 5, when he started playing the piano. By the age of 10, he composed his own tracks, and at the age of 15, he released his first trance album. He successfully completed the Digital Recording, Mixing and Mastering Engineering course of Sound Seminar Rotterdam. His 2005 album "Voices of Angels" ranked no.1 in the USA.

Michel also became interested in 3D art and game development at a very young age; at the age of 13 he wrote the codes for a game just for fun. He started learning 3D applications (predominantly 3ds Max) at the age of 15, and has improved his technical and artistic skills to a professional level in VUE, starting with the 1999 release of VUE d'Esprit 2. He spent over 8 years working for a game studio as a terrain & level designer, and he also composed more than 3 hours of music for the studio.

In 2013, he founded D&D Creations with VUE Environment Artist Drea Horvath. Currently, he works at DnD as a 3D Visualization Pipeline TD, Certified Sound and Video Engineer and Music Composer. He has worked on several projects focusing on animation, Virtual Reality, interactive visualization, content development and soundtrack writing.


Drea Horvath

Co-Founder, VUE Environment Artist, 3D Content Developer

Drea was born in Budapest, Hungary, where she became interested in 3D Landscape Art during her college studies. After some doodling in Bryce, she discovered VUE Infinite in 2008, and her passion for creating 3D landscapes has not faded ever since. Before founding D&D Creations, she worked for three years together with Michel in the video game industry as a terrain & level designer, and she has completed several 3D visualization projects as a freelance artist.

In 2010, Drea signed with 3D Artist Magazine as a Contributing Author. Since then, she also joined 3D World, 3D Art Direct and 3D Total as well, publishing several articles and tutorials. She designed the cover image for 3D World Issue 156, and some of her making-of tutorials are available at Cornucopia3D as well.

Drea moved to central Netherlands in 2012, where she founded D&D Creations in 2013 with Michel. At DnD, she works as a VUE Environment Artist and 3D Content Developer. She is also following a training in Digital Matte Painting. Drea has contributed to several projects focusing on animation, Virtual Reality, interactive visualization and content development.
