This week’s guest, Vlad Caprini, comes to ABIFF interviews to tell us more about the fascinating world of special effects (VFX) and motion graphics.
We invite you to find out more about the crazy courage that Vlad and his cousin, Ștefan Zlotescu, had when they left in 2006 to try their luck in the USA, with the OPTICFLAVOR studio, taking into account that in Romania it was not possible to talk about animation. and special effects at that time.
The first big contract, concluded in 2007 with Kanye West, to whom they made a first video, was just the beginning of a crazy success, the VFX studio – OPTICFLAVOR collaborating so far with many artists: Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Beyonce, Swizz Beatz, The Dream, Lady Gaga, Willow Smith, Jamie Foxx, Busta Rhymes, Chris Brown, T-Pain, Common, Pharrell Williams, Lil Wayne, Jack White, MIA, Hype Williams, Collin Tilly and Director-X.
Considering that the animation film industry is still at the beginning of the road in Romania, the emphasis will be on foreign financing in the future, but Romanians have a great advantage in this very attractive field for many young people..
