Dean Fowler
“My name is Dean and I’m an artist.
Over the course of 50 years I have been a photographer, a musician, a graphic artist and now a 3D CGI animator.
Son of a military man, I’ve traveled most of my life.
Taught myself how to play guitar.
Taught myself how to take pictures, WITH FILM!
I became a professional photographer in Orlando, FL.
Then I started a band with my brother and three other brilliant musicians.
Our 80’s hair band was called Disturbance and became so popular in Memphis, TN that we got signed to a record deal out in Los Angeles by Zoo Entertainment. We toured the country, made a video for MTV and played with some of the biggest bands from the 80’s and 90’s.
We moved to Los Angeles.
The band last its record deal as grunge became popular and ended many careers for those with long hair.
After depression, junk food and alcohol, I taught myself, by brother and the singer of Disturbance 3D animation. I have run my own CGI company for 13 years doing some of the largest video game titles in history/TV & Film as well as countless FX, my brother has worked on many films including Avatar and the singer has done motion capture for many video games, The Matrix films and the Lord of the Ring films. We all have since enjoyed many years of success and been very blessed.
For the last 22 years I’ve been living in Los Angeles, CA until last year when I moved to Rogersville.
I moved to Rogersville to help my parents be old.
I continue working as a 3D CGI artist and now enjoying the good life in Rogersville.
