Aussie Animator Joins Computer Cafe Crew
Australia-born Domenic DiGiorgio, a 3D animator specializing in character animation, has joined Santa Monica-based Computer Cafe as a lead character animator. Previously, DiGiorgio served as computer animation producer at Digital Animations Group, Scotland, where he created animation for television commercials and interactive games. In his two year tenure at Digital Animations, DiGiorgios credits include the games BRAVEHEART and OFFICIAL FORMULA 1 RACING, and commercials for Glover, Ike & Mike Hot Tamales and Lucky Duck. "Domenic has unique skills as a character animator, but equally important he has an excellent sense of design," said Computer Cafe executive producer Jeff Barnes. "We look for artists who are well rounded, but it is extremely rare to find someone who can do both of those things. We were very impressed." DiGiorgio said, "Computer Cafe has an excellent reputation and working here will expose me to bigger and better projects. And, there are so many talented people here, I feel that it is a great place to further develop my craft."
