My name is Davide Di Giannantonio Potente and I am a CG Supervisor and 3D Artist currently residing in Torino, Italy.
I create computer graphics since 2004: I began working as a Software Developer in applied research projects, participating to the foundation of the open source platform MESH, a previsualizaton and production software. After my graduation I've been involved in several linear and interactive 3D productions, working primarily as a Tech Artist, but also as a Lead 3D Artist. I also began teaching scripting and content production for real-time engines.
In 2010 I became 3D/CG Supervisor. So I started concepting and supervising productions concerning virtual reality, industrial simulations, architectural and design previsualizations, museum installations, interactive applications and performances.
Finally, in 2014 I also started a career as freelance 3D Artist, focusing primarily on the gaming industry.
Currently, I am working full-time as freelance 3D Artist.
