Head of Rigging
As Head of Rigging at Axis Studios, Mario has certainly got the moves. Thanks to him, all of our creations can move, bend, stretch and flex exactly as animators need them to. Prior to Axis, Mario earned a master’s degree in Industrial Design, Graphic and Visual Communication at the Sapienza University of Rome. He worked as an illustrator and web designer before entering the animation industry as Character TD, a role which combined his diverse passions for interfaces, problem solving, coding, character setup, storytelling, anatomy, sculpting and facial animation. Mario continues to ply these passions as Head of Rigging, ensuring that the Axis Studios rigging department continues to develop efficient solutions for advanced assets rigs.
