Interview with Luca Gabriele Rossetti
Q. Please share with us your scariest experience/most memorable incident in working for the big Hollywood film?
Incident? Oh good Lord...it never happened to me
A scary thing?...well, yes, the first time I ve been abroad to work in a studio....but, i suppose it is a normal experience.
Q. What are your major influences? Any artists in particular who influenced you a lot, or other media such as music and movies?
Dylan Cole is definitely the person who influenced me a lot, we worked on the same project once, and I learned a lot from him, especially the concept side, it is just awesome the way he uses the elements, to reach up an astonishing result, and, I've got so much from that technique, that today I am working in the same way.
Q. Your website is accessible when anyone enters the username/password. Can we know the reason for the same and why this is not accessible for everyone?
Oh yes indeed, the reason is quite simple, companies, vfx studios, and especially majors, doesn't like, sometimes, to make copyrighted material, public for all, so, due this reason, I prefer do not fall into any kind of miss understanding.
Even for a magazine like you're, it's not easy to publish works, unless you are allowed to do from who maintain the copyrights.
Q. Which software’s you have in your arsenal and why you prefer to use them?
I use a lot of tools, photoshop on first line, Maya or Max for 3D, and Nuke for projections and composting.
In the same time I also use other tools which help me out in some circumstances, like ZBrush or Vue
I have my personal opinion about tools, but, you need to be on the same page with vfx studios, so, you get driving by them in terms of tools.
I can say, I love Xsi, but then again, who is using xsi today? A very few bunch of studios...So you become not appetible in the market...
