(Only showing shots I worked included in the trailer, as DVD is still unreleased)
Lead artist with a small team, and also working on several sequences.

'47 Ronin' (Carl Rinsch, 2013)

'Guardians of the Galaxy' (James Gunn, 2015)
Sequence 1. (Crashsite). Done texturing for the crashed spaceship and Debris, Lookdev, paintover, render and and precomp.
Sequence 2. (Xandar City). Worked in lookdev for some buildings, layout for a sector of the city, render and precomp with deep passes. Tuned the renders of all Xandar to make them renderable and non-flickering. For some shots, created the fake water simulations in nuke for distant cameras. Maya, vray, nuke. 

'The Jungle Book' (John Favreau, 2016)
For the whole duration of the film, worked on several disciplines:
- modeling. Rocks, many rocks. Small rocks, large rocks. Pointy rocks, round rocks, any shape imaginable. Mainly Zbrush and maya.
- texuring. Rocks, grounds and any unorganic thing I could find. Doing hundreds of variations with different speculars for dry and wet
conditions.
- layout and scattering. Placing rocks and scattering stones, leaves and plants around.
- scripting. Building a few tools to help the texturing with nuke and python.

Note:
Many of the shots shown are done as part of a team. I would need to thank many other artists that have worked on some of these shots adding their talent.
Also, I have collaborated on dozens of other shots that I can not show in this showreel.
Any inquiry or question not covered in the breakdown, please send me an email and I can extend the description for any particular sequence, project or even shot.

Special thanks to 3 guys in MPC who I have learned much from: Marco Genovesi (HOD), Marco Rolandi (Environment Supervisor), and Stefano Cieri (computer guru).

VFX Personal Work reel

Compilation of some personal work, unreleased film shots or concept environments did between 2012 and 2013.
Some of these shots are still in concept stage and still need a lot of refining, or were simply discarded (removed from final release version).


Notes: 
The Sherlock Holmes backplate was courtesy of framestore, done while I was working there, but it is not the actual shot shown in the film. The character roto was done by the framestore roto team. The rest (model, track, lighting and compositing) was done by me. 
The timelapse shot is done over a footage filmed by Christian Clavadetscher. I did the modeling, texturing, lighting, roto, tracking and compositing.
The rest of the shots are fully done by me.
