WHO IS COFFEELAB?
CoffeeLab is me, Michele Andreoli
For years I’ve been involved with animation for advertising and TV products. In particular, my work is to give life to characters made in 3D.
So no … CoffeeLab does not produce coffee! But coffee always plays an essential role in the success of a job. When deliveries are at the gates, some coffee can really help.
CHARACTER ANIMATION – WHAT IS IT?
The Character animation is one of the many steps the processing of an animated product is divided in. In particular, it is the stage in which the animator, creating the illusion of movement, gives life to a character. As a director with the actor, so the animator moves its 3D model in an attempt to create an emotion, a personality but above all, he tries to tell a story.
To do that, the character animator needs more professional skills, such as those ones of the modeler and the rigger, needed to create an animated 3D model in all its parts. When animation is completed, other professionals will need to illuminate, render, and composite the scenes, in order to get a finished product.
SO … WHAT SERVICES DOES COFFEELAB PROVIDE?
I provide professional 3D animation services and in particular Character Animation for advertising, games, TV series, short films and feature films.
I generally collaborate with 3D production studios that have the professional skills (modeler and rigger etc) needed to help me in the animation stage.
However, in relation to the quantity and quality of the request, thanks to a network of external collaborators, I can manage small stand-alone production from concept to delivery.
Specifically my services are:
– 3D Animation
– polygonal modelling
– Concept and realization of animated contributes for documentaries and videoclip
– Video editing
– VFX and compositing
– Lectures of animation and VFX
WHERE AM I?
I live in Pisa, Tuscany. Every work is taken over and done here remotely. However, I may move for short periods when the prodution requires it.
