Working at Sony Imageworks

Well, my time in Singapore has ended and my experience at Lucasfilm Singapore is over. I had a blast and I have met A LOT of wonderful people, amazing artists and talented animators.
Now is time to move and a new adventure will start.

The 7th of January I will start working at Sony Imageworks at the new film Smurf 2.

There are many reasons that really make me happy to join Imageworks: The quality of work that they have been producing in the past years is absolutely stellar. The project is quite electrifying because I grew up watching the Smurfs cartoons and to think that I might now be animating and be Papa Smurfs really makes my inner child jump with joy and, I am also quite excited about the move, because most of my dear animator friends are currently working in that area and I can not wait to catch up with them.
So, if I will not update with the lates videos is because I will be UBERfocused on work!

I wish everybody great holidays and I wish myself good luck for the next project!!!
