ANTHONY RUBINSTEIN 

Hello! Thanks for checking out my site – I’m a freelance director / VFX artist & general maker of things. 

I’m still not 100% sure how I ended up doing this, but it probably escalated from a lifetime passion for film, photography and building eccentric contraptions.

I was lucky enough to start out with a couple of years at Red Bull Media House – where I cut my teeth as a general in-house content Ninja. My job involved shooting, producing, directing and editing all sorts of adventurous things all over the world, and it was a lot of fun. 

In 2018 I took the leap to do it by myself and set up ARvisual as company, it’s basically just me and not really a company. In fact, most of the time I work for other production companies, but occasionally we produce things as ARvisual and I assemble a crack team of freelance creatives to get the job done. 

Over the last few years I’ve directed various commercials, music videos for chart topping artists, a TV series for BBC Three and also picked up a Silver at the Young Director Award for a zero-budget pandemic short, which I’m quite proud of. 

If you hadn’t guessed I’m quite nerdy, I’ve actually got an Engineering degree from Cambridge Uni, and I do love to get my hands dirty building FPV drones or things like this 3D Spirograph light sculpture. 

In my filmmaking I’m all about innovating and pushing boundaries wherever I can, I love that intersection where tech meets art – so please do have a look around and get in touch if you’ve got a project you think I can help with! 

(P.S. Like any good borderline Gen-Z / mid 1990s kid I post a lot on Instagram and do a bit on the YouTube too, so that’s a good place to keep up with what I’m doing)
