My name is Giorgio Bertolone and I work in the Visual Effects / Videogames industry as Rigging Supervisor. I have Canadian and Italian dual citizenship so I am legally authorized to work in Canada and Europe. I have technical and artistic skills and I specialize in Rigging, Scripting and Tool Development. Working for films and videogames has always been my passion and I feel very lucky everyday for having such a wonferful and challenging profession.
I was born in Italy and I grew up living in Turin and then in Rome. Since childhood I was inspired by the beautiful artworks of my native land and my classical studies are a very important part of my development as an artist. After graduating in Graphic & Virtual Design I oriented myself in modern forms of art and I discovered my passion for Animation and Visual Effects.
I then moved to Canada and I studied 3D at the Vancouver Film School for one intensive and exciting year. Soon after getting my diploma I received my first job offer and experienced for the first time the joy of being paid to do what you love. Even now, after many years in different companies, I still have that joy and the same passion of when I started.
I currently live in Vancouver but I love to travel and explore the world so I can’t wait to see where my job will take me next. In my free time I surf the snow of the mountains of British Columbia, code indie games and sail “Ladyhawke”, my 40ft sailing yacht.
