My Work Experience


For those who wants to know the studios and the project I’ve worked on, here’s my past experiences 😉 MyJob

  • Senior 3D Character Animator

    Company Name: Goodgame StudiosSchermata 2017-08-14 a 15.38.26.png

    Dates Employed: Jul 2015 – Sep 2016

    Location: Hamburg Area, Germany

    Responsible for the in-game animations of the 3D characters of “A Little Lost” – puzzle game. In my role I had to deal with: set a workflow and the animation style, deliver animations for most of the characters in the game. In addition, I was responsible to guide and supervise other animators.

    My first experience in game started with this cute and fun puzzle game! I was responsible to animate the little 3D creatures that help you during the game…it has been a challange to find a way to keep this high quality of animations for this type of game, where you have technical limitations (limited bones, characters interaction with the gameplay, animations in place…) but looking at the result…I can say we have done a great job! 🙂

    We’ve been brave, we wanted to keep a quality comparable to a Tv series animation, and…we won! 😉

    Location: Pisa, Italy

    Senior animator for the tv serie “Taratabong – The World of Meloditties – Season 1 & 2”

    Full in love with Meloditties!
     
    I love this TV series! I participated to the first and the second season! 🙂
     
    Animate characters with no voice except for “music” sound was so challenging and interesting! I learned a lot, especially how to give life to characters just through eyes and “timing” and how to animate following precise beats and rhytm of the shot!
     
    LittleGossip: during the production of the second season I knew the best partner that I could meet (at work as in private life ^ ^)

 And, where’s everything started… my School Diploma, the “horror” Short Movie “Rampicante – Hederae Sicarus”

That I realized in 2006 with other 2 students! (I wasn’t so confidence with animation at that time…. :D)

    Hi!
    I don’t know if it’s the place to ask (and I apologize if not) but how is the animation industry in Italy (overall)?

    Great stuff by the way. Great experience and I like very much your tutorials and the breakdowns of them 🙂

      Hey! Sure this is the right place! Is the intention of this blog to answer your questions! 😉
      So, in Italy I’ve worked for most of my carreer (so far…), there are not so many studios as abroad, but I often find jobs (especially some years ago when I started this job). But… it’s not comparable to other european countries like UK or France, where there’are much more studios and job’s opportunities! Right know I’m living in Italy but I worked as freelance remotely for other studios out of Italy for example. Actually…I really would like to see some new animation sutdios in Italy! 🙂
