Sail away oversea, climb along the highest mountains, fight with dragons, and concur your worst enemy. Come with us on an adventure and explore more about this world by watching Nicola Danese’s personal showreel.
It all started back in the late 90s. I was attending university in Pavia when I fell in love with visual FX, wondering how people can create worlds that don’t exist, making them real and believable. All those spectacular movies made me dream about being part of their magic. With that goal fixed in my mind as soon as I graduated in IT Engineering I started a one year training class in visual FX and then spent 5 years working in Milan developing the foundations of my career in the VFX industry.
After those fantastic years I understood it was time for bigger challenges, so I moved to the UK and started working for MPC London. There I had the privilege to work with world class artists and supervisors, learning from them as much as I could. I started as FX Technical Director and after a few projects I had the opportunity to became Lead for shows like “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” and “Prometheus”. Fantasy and sci-fi worlds: what I was dreaming at the beginning of my career 15 years later finally came true. The list of movies I proudly took part in can be checked in my IMDB profile.
In 2015 I joined Proxima Milano as Head of 3D / VFX Supervisor to apply all my knowledge and keep working on exciting projects.
From May 2016 I proudly became member of the Visual Effects Society (VES)……the best is yet to come!
