Pete’s been involved in the games and CG industry since 2004, primarily in finding and keeping the best talent that’s out there, covering pretty much everything from modellers, to pipeline developers and everything in between. He kind of stumbled into recruiting (as most do) and then stumbled (again!) on an interest in 3D later on, before pursuing being professional involved in the creative industry - hence the switch to recruiting for games companies. Pete is our custodian for not only talent acquisition but outsourcing efforts too. He likes to spend his time with his wife and little boy, watching films, gaming and socialising.
One of our producers used to describe what Nick does as "Magic". In reality he is a Tool Developer and Problem Solver with a CG Generalist background.

Damian started working in CGI over 6 years ago. His interest in CGI first peaked after seeing an image of a Honda Civic from another artist. He was inspired to see if he could better it. So he set out to teach himself how, using Blender a free open source software and online tutorials. But when he moved onto 3dsMax he said it was “mind blowing!” Although Damian’s experience is as a general artist his passion is creating the perfect photo realistic image using his skills in materials, texturing and shading.

I'm from Leicester “Premier League Champions” and began creating 3D when I was 16 and soon realised this is the area for me. I am mostly self-taught in my skills with my original background being design. As I've always been a huge motorsport fan, my early projects were usually car related! I have known about RealtimeUK for a quite few years now and I have always been amazed at the global scale of projects from the automotive side to the international game trailers. Knowing that your work could be seen by potentially millions of people is a nice feeling.... if not a bit scary!
I'm a Star Wars kid and born in the 80‘s and very interested in Sci-Fi. I started off as more of a generalist then moved onto VFX and CGI on a professional level in 2009. My main skills lie in modelling/shading/lighting of hard surface objects, so I couldn’t wait to get started on some of the big car brands RealtimeUK are working on! To find out more take a little look at my blog post!

His focus is on written concepts, ideas, treatments and directing these right through to completion. He is a bit of a history buff so loves to get very involved in the research that surrounds his work and especially enjoyed Mummies Alive! But when he doesn’t have his head stuck in a project, he likes to spend all of his spare time with his young daughter.
Carlos was born in 1983, in Malaga, Spain. He remembers the sunny summer afternoon when his friend first introduced him to 3dsMax and has never looked back.

When he's not creating amazing images he is taking his dog for walks on the Beach and enjoying the sunny Blackpool weather!

Hey I’m Stu the Art Director at Realtime. My passion has always been art and I’m a big fan of one direction...all of them.... So I guess what I’m saying is I think I’ve always been destined to be an Art Director. I also like beards, but not on ladies.

Having always been an avid gamer and passionate about cars, I began my journey in the CG industry specialising in driving games. Over my 18 years in the industry I worked on or produced over 20 titles. I am now taking this passion for cars to a new level at RealtimeUK working in the automotive department. I am still an avid game fan, currently addicted to Destiny, but when not in front of the PS4 you can find me hunting for the twistiest roads I can find, on my trusty Aprilia RSV.
