We just love it when people send in their work for a feature! Luca Burchietti sent in his first short animation movie and we decided to feature it on Pixelsmithstudios for anyone who wants to start their own short. Luca even added a “Making of..” for any animators interested in the process.

Luca is a freelance graphic designer and 3d generalist and uses all kinds of tools to create his art.  He has a passion for animation movies and when he has some free time on his hands creates animations for personal projects or for clients.

His tools of the trade are Lightwave 3d for modeling / animation / rendering and 3d-Coat + photoshop for textures. So without further ado,enjoy Luca’s short 🙂
