About me

Hello! Thanks for stopping by! I’m Nicola Gastaldi, motion graphics designer, 3d artist, Cinema 4d generalist, projection mapping expert, V-ray enthusiast, in love with After Effects and, most importantly, with great ideas. I’ve been working at Smoke & Mirrors in London since 2012. I used to freelance around the world, working mainly on big scale events and projection mappings. I’m able to work alone, part of a team or as lead 3d artist. I have solid experience with Cinema 4D, Vray, Turbulence FD, After Effects and the whole Adobe Suite. Feel free to contact me!
