3DA: Why have you decided to work in 3d-field and when have you started? Where you studied?
PA: I started in 2012, and unlike many colleagues in the field, I wasn’t studying architecture. I was attracted to CG after a friend of mine showed me the famous movie “The Third and the Seventh” by Alex Roman. Then, I decided to choose my path and I started to learn 3d on my own, I spent many hours and many nights searching for tutorials on the internet and after a while I simply fell in love.

3DA: Which software you usually use for your projects? What has surprised you in positive and/or negative way in the software/plugins for CG during the last year?
PA: I use mainly 3ds Max, VRay and Photoshop, plus some scripts to 3ds Max, as floor generator, relink bitmaps, forest pack, Marvelous Designer, etc.
Last year, I think the positive surprise was Vray 3.0, it simplifies a lot our work.

3DA: What was most difficult for you when you just started working in 3D? And what is now?
PA: I think the most difficult was to start, like I said, I’m self-taught. Now I think the most complicated is crazy deadlines that clients want, but you must handle it professionally and do your best.

3DA: What you can advise to the students who are just starting their way in CG?
PA: You have to study a lot and if you are just starting out, you have to do a lot of work and put yourself on a deadline so that every month you will finish 1 project. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will improve your skills and your work will be as good as your ambitions. Is very important to be patient, so don’t quit.

3DA: What forecast you can make about the future of 3d-world in general?
PA: Now the whole industry is part of our lives, we can see it everywhere, from architectural visualisation, tv commercials, movies, tv shows, etc. In future the direction is unknown, but I believe that is still a lot to come and will have a very promising future. About my future, I can say that I’m working on my short film, stay tuned that this year there will be many news.
