Senior Technical Artist Ubisoft (Montreal, Quebec)
Maxime Deleris knew he wanted to work in video games from the moment he started to play Choplifter on his parents' Apple IIC in 1984. He studied visual arts and graphic communication, and began working as a multimedia and video editing artist in advertising, but soon became overwhelmed by his desire to create video games. He applied and landed an Art Director position at Kalisto, a French game company where he worked for five years. After Kalisto closed in 2002, he was hired by Infogrames in Lyon and then moved on to Ubisoft as a Visual Effects Artist. In 2006, Maxime became Senior Effects Artist for Ubisoft in Montreal. Maxime's credits include:Splinter Cell 2, 3 and 4, Surf's up, Rainbow 6, Vegas 2, Naruto 2, and Splinter Cell 5: Conviction.
