MATTEO PICCININI – AUTHOR, DIRECTOR AND CARTOONIST
I grew up playing with my imagination, using Super 8 format and then moving on up to digital files. I combine scale models with live action shots, green back and stop motion animation in a practical background. As a passionate for VFX – both on set and CGI – my work with stunts and VFX artists never finishes when the set lights go down; it continues with the meticulous coordination and supervision of the post production process.
I always get passionate about the brand, product or service I’m going to create a video for. My experience with classical and CGI animations allows me to develop a visual style according to the client’s message. From the initial concept and storyboarding to the post production coordination, I help delivering a touching and powerful imagery.
Animation and comics have always been my inspiration; a unique tool to create characters and stories without budget limits.
I combine childish and adult elements that translate into a sarcastic and ironic vision of the world. I work mainly with paper, clay, puppet stop motion animation and 2D drawn animation.
I love working using both traditional media like charcoal and oil colours, as well as softwares and the latest technology. As my favourite subject is portraiture, I mostly work in studio with oil or acrylic colours.
