“Ruben takes direction well and understands the briefs assigned to him. 
He is keen to help out in any way he can and shows a remarkable talent for both CG dynamic effects and general technical direction for lighting and rendering. 
I enjoyed working with him on Sinbad and his contribution to the project is very much appreciated.” February 22, 2012

FX TD

“To whom it may concern, I would like to write a brief recommendation for Ruben Mayor, simply to testify to his talent and abilities.

I have not personally worked with Ruben, however he has attended multiple of my FX related workshops and masterclasses over the years and stood out from the crowd as someone not only exceptionally talented, but also eager to learn and apply himself far more than a lot of other students.

He has not only a good creative eye, but also strong technical abilities and quickly is able to pick up new tools and understand new approaches very quickly which is something that stood out to me.I have recommended Ruben for multiple projects over the years as I think he's definitely someone who is more than capable of working in a feature film and/or game environment on not only effects but I'm confident that he would excel in most areas of 3D.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me, as again I'm more than happy to stand behind Ruben's abilities and refer him for any project.

Kindest regards,

He likes new challenges and will find or create the solution you have been looking for in the shortest amount of time. You are looking for a great TD, easy to work with and who will boost your project ? Don't hesitate he will be the right one for any kind of job you may have !” July 31, 2011

VFX Artist/TD

Freelance

“Ruben Mayor est un spécialiste tant dans les VFX que le script, le développement d'outils personnalisés est un avantage extraordinaire dans la production. La facilité avec laquelle Ruben transcrit une idée en un outil efficace est déconcertante... 
J'ai collaboré avec Ruben à plusieurs reprises sur quelques scènes très spécifiques en VFX, simulation de liquides en intérieur, avec des objets en dynamique. Scène d'extérieurs sous différents climats et sujets d'effets visuels (explosion dans de la neige, torrent d'eau dans de la roche, explosion et effondrement d'un building...) En tant qu'artiste environnement j'ai particulièrement apprécier sa capacité à s'adapter et les échanges de nos diverses collaborations. 

Je le recommande sans le moindre doute à toute personne cherchant un élément qualifié, opiniâtre et aussi pointilleux que moi dans son travail.” July 31, 2011
