Back on Track

So after ages of absence, guess who's back?
I surely haven't quit on animation! After the Raving Rabbids I worked on the new episodes of Calimero, a character I've been following ever since my childhood, so working on this iconic character has been quite a blast from the past, although not easy at all. After that I moved back to Rainbow CGI to work on the second season of Mia and Me, and right now I'm in Vienna working on the brand new 10' episodes of the world's most beloved cat (okay okay, right after Tom & Jerry, Sylvester, Grumpy, Keyboard Cat, Simon's Cat.... okay I'm done), Talking Tom & Friends! The pilot episode has been online since Christmas and gained so many views, so the project is definitely alive and kicking. I'm also working on more peronal project which will hopefully see the light soon enough. I will keep you posted!

Rabbids are invading!........... Again.

Yup. I was animator on the Rabbids Invasion TV series currently airing every Saturday on Nick.
 The Rabbids have grown so popular that I actually enjoyed animating them! It's never too hard to animate a character you already know so well... :)

Dinosaurs short: Wrap Party!

Here are the pictures we took at that super-awesome wrap party we had last month to celebrate the completion of the Jim-Henson memorial short "I'm the Baby - Gotta Love Me!"
The whole soirĂ©e has been great fun and many new ideas came out for the future projects. We toasted to the short and Jim Henson himself, may he rest in peace forever. Too bad many of us weren't able to join the party, but oh well. It was like they were there. :)
Davide Maugeri (director-animator), Matteo Rovatti (animator), Luca Stocchi (texture artist - matte painter), Alessandro Lolli (3D modeler, render assistant), Andrea & Francesca (Luca & Alessandro's girlfriends), Baby Sinclair (party pooper... literally, a real pooper.)

Enjoy the pictures!

 Awesome stone-age theming inside the restaurant

 That's me, working on brand-new ideas... oh yeah.

 Our 3D modeler is also a screenwriter... who would have guessed?

Animators United!

 Production babies.... :)

 Checking out the menu...

 WOOOW... Giant stone-age calzone! YUMMY

 Some delicious coconut ice cream for dessert.

And here we are! Greetings to the rest of the team who couldn't join us at this beautiful party!

.......AND IT'S DONE!! Enjoy it!

After 8 months of hard work, we are proud to show you our ultimate tribute to Jim Henson: "I'm the Baby, gotta love me!" is a CG animated short featuring two famous character from one on JH's most succesful shows, "Dinosaurs". Due to unknown reasons (probably because of the series' finale) the serie hasn't been shown around on TV for many many years, and the characters ended up forgotten. We wanted to praise Henson's work and make these characters raise again at the same time. This is how we did it. We hope you enjoy!!

P.S. There are 5 muppetational easter eggs in the short. Have fun and search for them all!

Hiya all,
I'm very glad (and honored!) to announce two main amazing news I have in store for you:

First, I've started working at RAINBOW CGI where I've been involved in two great projects:

Gladiators of Rome

Winx season 5

I'm having a great time animating on both, and I feel like I've been learning a lot. Plus, all the guys there at RBW CGI are extremely kind. Long story short, let's just say that I'm living my dream. :D
Wait, there's more: remember the old Jim Henson/Disney TV serie called Dinosaurs? Well, some workmates and I are doing a 1.30' CG animated short based upon those characters. Gotta love'em!
And here's the article Ryan Dosier from The Muppet Mindset reserved us:

Befriend that bull, man...

Whoo-hoo! Hey guys! Are you ready to meet Clive, the most handsome and loyal British gentle-bull you've ever seen? He also had a very good taste in picking friends. His BFF is that cute little skinny coyote over there, the name's Drake. Well, what's wrong with that, you might ask. Easy: Clive is supposed to guard over a farm house, instead Drake is hungry all the time so he got used to stealing other's food... Got it now?
The pilot episode is coming this holiday season, in the meantime do not forget to visit, like and share the OFFICIAL FACEBOOK PAGE.

Befriend the bull, coming soon on YouTube!

Re-creating and animating Daxter was a lot of fun I feel like sharing it with the whole world. Just a few adjustments here and there and the Daxter rig will be available on Creativecrash!
