Giovanni De Francesco
Senior Lighting Technical Artist @ CD PROJEKT RED
Warsaw, Poland


Ciao! I'm Giovanni De Francesco, an Italian 3D artist and creative.
Passion for every kind of art form is what drives me forward every day, but Computer Graphics is the one that stole my heart.
By now I have more than ten years of professional experience in the field working alongside great people and great studios.

As a freelancer my focus has been working with VFX production companies, architectural firms and design studios by creating TV commercials, short movie and previsualization renderings.
I'm highly adept at communicating with different audiences like artists, engineers and managers.

My love for videogames and VR has led me to have a deep understanding of realtime graphics which I mainly applied in producing virtual reality experience for the B2B market.
I have been a beta tester for Epic Games since before Unreal Engine 4 was released therefore I gained a profound knowledge in graphics aspects such as: dynamic and baked lighting, reflection systems, PBR, in-engine atmospherics, character lighting, look development, post processing and shading network.
Occasionally I teach lighting and rendering in private courses.

Being a professional artist is a lifelong process and I am constantly learning, enhancing and crafting my skills, driven from a growing passion and always thrilled by newest technology development.
