This is my "nickname" since I started my carreer in the VFX industry quite a long time ago and it's also the name of my own Company when I freelance all around the world. Why this nickname?! It's a long story... I will explain you if and when we will eventually meet in person :-)
I am a VFX/CG Supervisor with almost 20 years of professional experience and I had the chance to work on various projects and for many different companies all around the world. I worked on Movies, TV Series, Feature Animation, Commercials, and ADV campaigns of international importance. I am an ACP (Autodesk Certified Professional), an AAI (Autodesk Authorized Instructor) for both 3DSMax and Maya, and an Autodesk consultant on the entire Media & Entertainment suite since 2008. I also am a beta tester for other big companies such as Foundry (Katana), Allegorithmic/Adobe (Substance Suite), and R3DS (Wrap3D).
The need to face always different challenges and my ability to adapt myself to various team, projects and working pipeline has given me the opportunity to test different approaching techniques in searching the right solution for the problems that I faced. So I become a very all round VFX/CG Supervisor (with great problem solving attitude) capable to analyze a production in every specific aspect, to create an efficient working pipeline and to lead and supervise a vast team of artists.
Since many years I started to create tutorial and to partecipate to mentorship programs to help younger generation to learn and grow in the industry. This is like a vocation for me.
I supervised small, medium and big production; diretly on set, on remote or "just" leading my team, but always with one main goal in mind... QUALITY.
Always searching for the best tools available on the market I managed to become beta tester for some of the biggest software companies out there. To name a few: Foundry (Katana), Allegorithmic/Adobe (Substance), and R3DS (Wrap3D).

"I highly recommend working with Cristian as VFX/CG Supervisor even on remote. He understands pipeline very well and has completed big projects with us without a hitch. The clients always loved his work."
Director @ cum. m+d
"I have worked with Cristian on the movie Cats, he was the CG Supervisor while I was leading the Layout department. Despite the great technical complexity of this show and the short production time, he made this experience a smooth ride from start to finish. He always came up with the best possible solution to every single challenges, offering high end approaches, pushing the team to constantly give their 110% while being an inspirational leader. I would feel honored to have a chance to work with him in the future on any given production."
Layout Supervisor @ MillFilm
"I had worked with Cristian on CATS at Mill Film. He was my CG supervisor on the show. Working with him has always been easy. He is a relaxed person and is patient, regardless of how much pressure there is. When it comes to work, he has great knowledge of various software technically. If there was an issue that needed to be resolved I knew I could just go to Cristian and ask. He was approachable and extremely helpful. He is a supervisor who puts his trust in you and gives you the time needed for the work. Overall, he has been a nice supervisor to work with and a great problem solver. I hope that we cross paths in future and work together soon."
Environment Supervisor @ MillFilm
"It was great working with Cristian because he is a realist and to the point. He gets things done in a fast, practical way rather than wasting weeks to do it the conventional way. Also, he has solid VFX knowledge, which helps communicating with different disciplines and solving problems."
FX Supervisor @ DNEG
"I was lucky enough to be introduced in the VFX world by Cristian. As my CG Supervisor at Digital District, he taught me how to be a professionnal 3D artist. He is an excellent teacher and I was fortunate enough to spent 6 month learning the approch on how to think about creating assets. I recommend Cristian for any modeling and shading task as well."
Character Artist/Hair Specialist @ Ubisoft Montreal
"Cristian was my CG Supervisor when I was at Mokko Studio and then at Digital District. He is a very competent person who has a good overall vision of all CG departments. He understands the needs of projects and he know what we needed to achieve the objectives. He is also a very good teacher, he always had answers when I asked him to explain some technical things to me. I hope to work with him again."
