Miranda Leighr

Hello! I am an artist from a small town near Kansas City, Missouri.  In 2018, I moved to Savannah, Georgia to attend the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) majoring in Visual Effects with a minor in Film & Television.


I became interested in pursuing art as a career during my freshman year of high school. I studied mostly fine art until my senior year when I became interested in graphic design and digital collage. Since then, technology as an artistic medium for telling stories has captivated me more than anything else.  I was inspired to do visual effects after watching the behind the scenes of the film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.  Compositing quickly became my favorite part of the pipeline because of its similarity to collage art when combining different elements of a shot together. 

Recently, as I've gotten involved in more collaborative projects, I've also realized my passion for organizing and leading teams. I love communicating with artists from different departments and being able to coordinate and delegate the visual effects work in a shot. Because of this, I am interested in becoming a VFX Coordinator or Producer if the opportunity arises. 

I am excited to keep learning as I build my portfolio, reel, and skills. I love working with teams, so please don't hesitate to reach out to me if you would like to collaborate on a project!

I am currently in search of a compositing or VFX Production internship for Summer 2021.
