Giuseppe took our animation short course at Escape Studios a few years ago, and since then has developed a career as an animator and 3D generalist. Medical animation is still a pretty new field for animators, a departure from our traditional role as entertainers, helping instead to advance medical knowledge and surgical procedures.
