This is a commercial realized for FunGo studios in 2012. The video is advertising an App for iphone, a geolocalized strategy game, named Place Commander.

Here it is!. It’s the result of 6 weeks of work, a team of 30 people and a lot of effort.

It took all of our energies and hours of sleep, but the result was worth everything.

 

 

Personally I worked in the artistic department, and then I did model, shading, lighting, render, and digital compositing.

Here it is a small interview (in italian) about what my work at the beginning was about. Enjoy!

 

 

 

Some works I realized during the XIV master at Big Rock traning Center in Roncade.

Here are some of the works I made during my residency at Kala Art Institute in Berkely, from November 2011 to January 2012.
During my trip to Yosemite National Park in 2011 I became very inspired by the texture of the burnt trees I could see there. I found it very interesting how a forest needed fire in order to regenerate and how the death of the tree is a necessary step for the health of the whole forest.
I also like the texture of wood when it becomes coal. Both fragile and strong, I decided to try to capture its essence through etching and intaglio techniques.

I also started experimenting with different papers and inks. It’s still a work in progress, and a visual theme I would like to explore further
