With the advent of new consumer Computers he discovered 3D graphics, first with 3D Studio Dos and in the years to come with Lightwave. He entered the world of special effects and from that moment on he dreamed of the special effects of Hollywood.
Over the years he attended regional courses in applied electronics and programming with Visual C++.
For many years he has developed websites with PHP and MySql and apps for iOS and Android, but never forgot his great passion: shooting videos and working in the field of digital visual effects.
He made some short films and music videos with Cordamara and Roberta Faccani (ex singer of Matia Bazar).
THOSE WHO ARE CRAZY ENOUGH TO THINK THEY CAN CHANGE THE WORLD USUALLY DO. (STEVE JOBS)
“To get to know a subject in depth, you have to dig down to the roots. Only in that way, we can know the secrets, the problems and the solutions to solve them. And only in that way, the difference arises between who “knows” a topic and who really knows it!”
Due to his vast experience in the use of Photoshop and other compositing software in the field of visual effects and image manipulation, he realised how important it was to understand in depth what really happened when he tried to modify an image. For this reason, in his spare time he decided to develop Anaconda, a software with advanced image manipulation features, including colour correction, LUT generator, matte and everything regarding pixel manipulation.
At the same time it develops other software among these, FFMPEGUI, a software which uses the renowned Ffmpeg command line program, which permits the conversion and transcoding of video. It has been released for free in beta version. You can download it and find more related information on this page.
Always trying to deepen his knowledge of special effects, he decided to follow a specialist course on Nuke with Steve Wright, guru in the field of special effects in Hollywood. In the meantime, a collaboration was born with Steve which led to the filming of a videoclip currently used in the Master in FXEcademy Special Effects and in Workshops around the world, the latest in Framestore.
He also decided to deepen another of his passions: musical compositions. He followed a Master in Film Music Composition with Susanna Quagliarello, teacher of vfxwizard. You can hear some compositions written for images in the section: colonne sonore (to be updated).
He was quickly taken by the musical sector and started to study pianoforte, taking private lessons for a few months. After about six months he composed Amelia, and in a little less than two years he recorded three pieces on the piano: Amelia, Guerriera and Speranza.
