My name is Giuseppe Improta, I am a self-thought 3D Artist, a Photographer/Cinematographer, a Creative Entrepreneur, and a Mentor. I have been working in the post-production industry for about 20 years and as a freelance photographer/cinematographer for over 12 years.
After obtaining my computer science diploma, I attended the Fine Art Academy in Italy, where I worked for about 10 years. I started as a generalist 3D Artist and then modeler, rigger, pipeline TD, compositor, and CG Supervisor for small and medium-sized productions.
After leaving Italy, I have specialized in 3D Lighting and Lookdev and now I am a 3D Director of Photography for high-profile movies and animated feature films.
My distinctive way of approaching 3D lighting is derived from my long experience working as a freelance photographer in different fields on-set and outdoors, and as a cinematographer.
Teamwork is what I love the most about my job. There is only so much one can achieve alone, the biggest results are always obtained when working together with minds that think alike, and strive to achieve the same goal. I always love to learn and improve in anything I do. Likewise, I find great fulfillment in teaching and sharing what I have learned. I am happy to help the students avoid as many mistakes as possible, and see them thrive and improve at their craft.
