About

I’m Henry Lockett, a real-time VFX artist with commercial experience in games. I love technical art and learning new techniques to create interesting effects, but I appreciate the importance of not putting the tech ahead of the art.

I graduated from The University of Birmingham with an Electronic Engineering degree (B.Eng Interactive Systems), and I am a Master of Arts with Distinction in Game Art from Escape Studios in London. I am currently a VFX Artist at nDreams in Farnborough.

In 2020 we published Phantom: Covert Ops, a VR stealth game for Oculus Rift and Quest, and later in 2021 we will be launching Fracked, an all-action skiing adventure.
