Computer Animation and Visual Effects

RUFA, in Computer animation the Masterclass with Giovanni Braggio

The Masterclasses of the Computer animation and visual effects course continue. RUFA – Rome University of Fine Arts has scheduled a series of meetings that put students in front of the top experts in this field. The aim, of course, is to encourage the exchange of ideas and projects, considerably reducing the entry into the world of professions and facilitating, from this point of view, a more operational vision when leaving the Academy’s classrooms.

The Masterclasses, which will be held until next May, show two fundamental elements: the high level of performance that creativity generated and produced in Italy can achieve and the excellence that students can strive for with passion and commitment.

The designers of computer animation and visual effects turn their attention to different and not necessarily convergent sectors: cinema, television, audiovisual and web productions. Hence the need to listen and perceive the inputs coming from the outside to get the most out of the human capital available.

From January 27th to 31st the protagonist of the Masterclass is Giovanni Braggio: he was born in Reggio Calabria in 1983, he graduated in Rome at the Sapienza University in Graphics and Multimedia Design and, at the same time, he obtained the diploma of the Scuola Romana dei Fumetti and that of the Animation Department of the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia. Already a professional, he attended the 3d character animation course at the Animation Workshop. 2d and 3d animator and director of short animated films, he works for several international studios including “Sergio Pablos Animation”, “Cartoon Network”, “Passion Pictures”, “Red Knuckles” and “Nørlum”, both in the field of cinema and television. These projects are complemented by freelance work for short films and advertising, not forgetting his own personal projects. He moves between England, Denmark, Portugal and Spain.
