I'm Diego Ioppolo.
Motion Designer, Vfx Artist
and Director from Italy.
I was born in Como in 1990.
I grew up around Lake Como and Italian Alps, I managed projects around the world, interacting every days with several international clients, but I still live close to these beautiful places, my birthplace.
At the age of eight, I convinced my parents to buy me my very first Analog Camera with which I began taking animal and landscape pictures. A few years later, I upgraded my equipment and discovered the Digital Photo Editing that combines two of my greatest passions: Photography and Informatics. This new discovery brought me to the composition of Graphical Images and meanwhile, using an old MiniDV Camera, I began facing the magnificent world of Moving Images.
During High School I was awarded with several prizes presenting some Video Works in local competition. My studies led me to approach 3D Computer Graphic and, for the final exam, I created my first Architectural 3D Visualization. After graduating with honours in 2009 I began studying Civil Engineering at Milan Polytechnic. A few months later, despite good grades, I decided to leave these studies for my greatest passion: Digital Film.
So, I enrolled at SAE Institute in Milan to consolidate my knowledge about the world of Cinema and deepening Post Production and Visual Effects. I got my degree in early 2012 and started working for some agencies in Milan, meanwhile I started at SAE a 3D Animation course to expand my background.
Between 2014 and 2018 I traveled the world building cityinaweek.com my most satisfying personal project ever that I still keep updated.
Today I'm a Senior Vfx Artist and Motion Designer and in the last years I started to deliver some Art Direction works. I'm now working for clients and agencies around Italy, Germany, Switzerland, United Kingdom and Russia.
My passion for Photography is still alive...
