Eugenia Gioanina

USA,  Los Angeles Gnomon School of Visual Effects,  Entertainment Design & Digital Production,  September 30, 2016
Hi! I'm Eugenia and I am an Italian student. I've always been interested in Art, Architecture, movies and theater. I try to travel as much as I can, because it's a great way to learn about new cultures and places. Whenever I do, my two companions are my sketchbook and my Camera. I picked up Photography as a way to retain al the things I saw and study composition, lighting, color and texture.
I majored in Set Design at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera in Milan (Italy). there I focused on PreViz for Theater and TV, and I also worked on more practical Stage Building projects. while working on my thesis I worked on a TV show as Set Designer assistant.
My curiosity than brought me here in LA, to attend Gnomon School of Visual FX. in the past terms I have learnt a lot. keeping in mind my background in Stage Design and my interest in architecture, I now have a better understanding of what i want to focus in: I picked the Generalist track at Gnomon, because it should give me all the skills needed to work as an Environment Artist. I strive to finish here with a good knowledge of lighting, texturing, modeling, compositing and matte painting.
This demo reel represents my first approach to 3D (from most recent work, to the first projects).
I still have a long way to go, but i look to the future with great enthusiasm!
