Creator Spotlight: Gera Fine
Creator from 🇮🇱 Israel
Hi Kewin! Please, tell us something about yourself.
So as I mentioned before, my name is Gera Fine. I am 33 years old, living in Israel, working as a graphic designer and as a freelance creating events for different kinds of occasions using my innovative technology such as “The magic mirror”and “AR Photo Both”. My mind is always thinking. I love to invent things by thinking outside of the box. When a problem stands in front of me it is a great opportunity to learn something new to overcome it.
Name the best effects you created and briefly describe them.
Eye Crazy – despite other 3D lenses I created, this lens was a sort of a memory from my past when I had this funny eyeball spring glasses which i really wanted to create as an AR experience that used very complex elements and techniques to be created.
Old Lady – not because of the complexity of the effect but mostly because this was that effect that touched over 60 million people over the world and was the breaking point which gave me that understanding of what makes people want to use your lens and the wish to share it further.
Which platform for creating AR filters is your favourite and why?
Lens Studio is an amazing platform that gives you the ability to create easy lenses. If you have the knowledge and enough experience you can create dozens of lenses each day. For me? It’s not about the amount but rather the quality and a good idea. I create lenses both for my business and of course for the general Snapchat users.
What in your opinion makes an AR effect successful?
It is the art of creating meaningful emotions and the wish to share them with others.
If there is anything else you would like to share please do it here:
The first thing we need to do is to create the thought then we can imagine it and make it brighter and closer… In our imagination, we will give it colors, animation, and sound then we will feel it emotionally and then we will bring it to life.
