Theater show – La Volata di Calò

This archived content does not reflect my current skills

Background animation for the theater show “La Volata di Calò”, for Teatro Stabile di Catania. It’s the adaptation of a novel by G. Savatteri about the life and the dreams of the man who founded the Montante bike factory.
The prologue is set in a legendary market of the shadows imagined by the protagonist when he was still a child, so director Fabio Grossi asked me to aid the narration with my animations.

The seventeen instruments, left to right: accordion, saxophone, Italian bagpipe, sousaphone, harmonica, drum, trumpet, cymbals, triangle, guitar, piano, tracker, double bass, violin, flute, harp, didgeridoo.

▶ 3D acting: the wrong move

This archived content does not reflect my current skills

A 3D-animated piece of acting was really missing from my portfolio. This was also the first time I animated a lipsync in Blender.
Eleven is the name of the rig. It’s open source and available for free at elevenrig.blogspot.com.
The closest thing to this I had ever done was a puppeteering performance. The “rig” only had three “controllers”, and no, I couldn’t have him to blink.

This is the Making Of video for Oranguerrilla, my student film for the Academy of Art University, San Francisco. I really wanted to make this backstage video as it brings together the countless steps I went through to make my film.
Roughly, I spent 1600 hours of work on the project from concept art to the final edit, spread over two and a half years.
