I have a degree in Graphic & Virtual Design, but starting from high school I would have liked to work in the videogame industry, I like both videogame art and game design, my final university thesis was about of a smartphone app with gamified structures to help people to get involved with art and culture.
Now I'm attending a master in "Technical Concept Art for Videogames" (it's just one day a week) we work with Photoshop for digital painting and with Maya and Zbrush for 3d.
Anyway after my degree I started to work as motion designer for videoproduction company and graphic design studios: I use After Effects and I do almost 2d effects, but now I'd like to start play and animate with 3d.
I can also be a videomaker and photographer, I'm good with studio lightning and I'm practicing with natural light photography, my reference photographer is Alessio Albi and I will attend his first workshop in September 2015.
Finally thanks to my degree in Graphic & Virtual Design I'm able to manage project as art director too.
