Senior Rigger

Niels Kleinheinz

My name is Niels Kleinheinz (birth name Roscher) and I am a senior character rigger. Apart from that I also develop tools for the rigging pipeline in Python, MEL and MaxScript.

I've worked on feature film productions including multiple locations which allowed me to supervise teams in Mumbai, India, Peking, China and Sophia, Romania. Originally from Germany, I've also had the chance to work in London, UK and Abu Dhabi, UAE.
