About Susanna Quagliariello
Susanna is VFX Wizard's executive officer. She holds a MS degree in Communications Science, is a published author, has a music academy diploma and a specialist certificate in film scoring. Her music has been distributed internationally. She is at ease with any keyboard: qwerty or midi. She's also the one ensuring projects are done on time and within the budget - that's why in the studio she's affectionately known as Severus Snape's long lost sister.
About Massimiliano Marras
Max is a published author, has been producing commercial 3D animation since 1989, and his softwares have been sold in 31 countries around the world. He has taught compositing and animation both online and in classrooms. Anybody who has seen Big Bang Theory refers to him as Sheldon — he thinks it's a fair comparisons but doesn't quite get why it's supposed to be funny.
About Fabio Lanzillotta
Fabio teaches Maya at the Academy of Fine Arts of Bari. He loves character design with a strong preference towards cartoon characters. He has a BA in Fine Arts as well as a specialist diploma in theatre design and virtual scenography. He thinks rendering is overrated and would much prefer to hand paint every frame of his animations -at subpixel resolution, of course.
About Daniele Angelozzi
Daniele is one of the world's few Pixologic-certified zBrush instructors, he has a PhD in Biology, but his real passion is sculpting. He has developed concept art and models for games and video productions and has taught digital sculpting at the world renowned Academy of Fine Arts of Brera in Milan. He has always denied all rumors about his "I Love Wacom" tattoo.

VFX Wizard operates from Rome, in Via Andrea del Castagno 22/24/180, in the prestigious EUR business district, headquarter of many among Italy's largest companies and institutions – form Confindustria to Unicredit to Siemens.
The office is located inside an iconic multifunctional structure designed in the early 1980s to resemble a modern Coliseum.
It's a wonderful workplace, well served by public transport, with recreation facilities ranging from swimming pools to tennis courts, 24/7 armed private security and a conference building inside the private park - which when need arises, becomes a great green screen or motion capture studio.
