My name is Marco Spitoni, I was born in 1970 in the north of Italy and I'm presently living and working on the other side of the world in New Zealand I have been using 3DStudio since release 4 under DOS! I worked for some years in special effects for commercials at the end of the 80's, when physical models were used instead of CG. In 1993 I was hired in a local videogames developer company now known as Milestone who worked with Virgin IE, Atari and EA Sports. I'm presently working at Weta Digital, Peter Jackson's VFX facility as Previs Supervisor, here in Wellington, NZ. My passion for 3D graphics began in 1995 when I wanted to re-create starship models from Star Wars movies, without using glue and plastic. Then I decided to enclose all those models in one (all CG) short movie: 'Join the Empire'. Later, I've dedicated much of my spare time to develop a new idea for a short movie project:'THE HUNT'. Two years later, I've started to work onto another short movie that took 5 years of my spare time to finish: 'CODE GUARDIAN'. You can download these animations in the Movies area. I like movie-making and I love cinema. I've always loved its language, and this is a chance for me to tell a visually intriguing story, just using my imagination and creative skills... just a 3D package and a PC.
