eliZabeth and thierrY start working together at Dreamworks. Back in France, and while pursuing their personnal career, they had the chance to collaborate on many occasions for prestigious clients such as Jeep, Meccano, Safran.
Thierry is the concept/illustration artist and EliZabeth is the CG artist. This two-step creative process speeds up the flow of client's greenlight based on the Agency's pitch, and reduces the number of back and forth once the CG starts.
With a couple of creative awards under their belt, eliZabeth and thierrY have decide to fuse their skills and create "YZ" to offer the ideal service from the first line drawn on paper to the last click on the mouse.

After studying photography and CGI at Gobelins L'Ecole de l'Image, and working as a 3D texture artist at DreamWorks Animation studio in Bangalore, India, I decided to further leverage my visual arts background and specialize in 3D print at Paris-based Mecanique Generale, one of France’s first full 3D print studios.
Since 2010, I have been working as a freelance 3D artist with all-sized advertising and creative agencies.
Proficient in Adobe CC Suite, I am also using Autodesk Maya, Zbrush, Vray and Mental Ray, and I have extensive knowledge of Texture, Shading, 3D modeling, Rendering and composition. My experience working as a freelancer has led me to work across multiple verticals, from Advertising to art work, thus making me highly adaptable.
I thrive to deliver only the best results so feel free to check out my portfolio and shoot me an email if you have any 3D needs.
Based in Paris, France, I am currently serving clients located all over Europe, so I am quite comfortable working across multiple time zones.
After graduating from French ENSI School of Engineering in 2002 and working as a computer engineer in France and Germany for a couple of years, Thierry Marchand decided to follow his passion for 3D animation and graduated in 2007 from Gobelins L'Ecole de L'Image, one of the best visual arts schools in the world.
His graduation animated short film, Oktapodi, which he co-directed, earned numerous international awards and was nominated for an Oscar in 2009. From 2007 to 2009, Thierry worked as a 3D animator at VFX studio Framestore in London and DreamWorks’ animation studio in Bangalore, India.
Since 2010, he has been working as a freelance director and a freelance CG artist on multiple projects with different animation studios in Europe and Asia, while developing his own animated feature film. Most recently, he served as episodic director on the third season of hit animated TV series “Angelo Rules” (to air in France in 2016), a TeamTO/Cake co-production for Gallic pubcaster France Televisions and Teletoon Plus.
Born and raised in France, Thierry is fluent in both English and German.
