Guglielmo Gagliano Candela

What course did you study?

Advanced 3D for Visual Effects (18 weeks)

What are you working on at the moment?

I can't say what I'm working on at the moment, but I'm working at Nvizible and in the last few months I have worked on the TV series Outlander. 

What film are you most proud of working on and is your most notable achievement?

I worked on Thor Ragnarok at Framestore, and it was a really good work experience! Great company and talented coworkers! I got to model loads.

If you had to sum up your time at Escape Studios in one word, what would it be and why?

Leap!

Everything I learnt during my course allowed me to grow as an artist and improved my thinking out of the box!

What lessons have you learnt during your time studying and your time working in VFX?

During my course I learnt how to work in a team and to share and receive advice and tips to improve projects and skills. In my work time I'm learning how important contacts are! Building your own network is the key to break (and stay) in the industry.

What is your advice for those considering entering the industry?

Have a good network and study a lot. The more you know the more you can apply for different positions.

What's your favourite movie and why?

My favourite movie is the “Back to the future” trilogy. When I was a child I wished to receive the hoverboard for my birthday. When my mother tried to explain that it was a special effect I asked her to buy me a Camcorder... after a few years I started my career as Video Editor and today I am in the VFX Industry waiting for Back to the future part IV.
