2.5 years - University of Sydney
1.5 years - SAE Institute
My name is Jade Taglioli, I am a 3D Artist from Sydney, Australia, and have my Masters Degree in Design Science from Sydney University.
Since completing my Masters, I have worked as a 3D Generalist for a Sydney based company called FSM. FSM is a creatively driven post-production company specialising in design, VFX and film post production. During my time there I completed a wide variety of commercial campaigns for Australia-wide companies such as Optus, Woolworths and Range Rover, just to name a few.
In August 2008 I worked with an LA based company called The Masses. I worked very closely with academy award winner and co-director Daniel Auber on the project called King Rat. The final piece was a music video clip for Modest Mouse, directed by the late Heath Ledger and co-directed by Daniel Auber.
In December 2009 I moved to the East Coast of Canada as I was offered a fantastic opportunity to work as a lead 3D Instructor at The Centre for Arts and Technology. The Centre for Arts and Technology, has campuses located in Kelowna BC, Halifax NS, and Fredericton NB, and is an accredited, higher education institution. As part of my role, I taught third year Diploma students 3D Animation and Gaming at the Fredericton NB campus, while streaming live via VCU to students at the other two campuses. During my last few months at the campus I became responsible for restructuring the core syllabus, which is currently being taught to the students. On the completion of the course, students will have knowledge in areas of 3D Modeling, Sculpting, and Animation in programs such as Maya, Softimage, Mudbox and Motion Builder.
Over the years I have developed my skills in an array of areas in the post production industry. My passion for 3D Animation, organizational and people skills has developed to a new level of interest, into becoming a producer. During my time as a lead instructor I grew a passion for personal interaction, problem solving and time and project management. I feel that with my ongoing knowledge of the production pipeline, given the opportunity I will work my way into the role of becoming a great producer. This coupled with a thorough knowledge and understanding of the software being used I believe I will bring a unique set of skills to any organization to complete the job at hand.
I currently hold a two-year working visa in Canada and a two-year working visa for the United States. In addition to this, I hold both Australian and Italian passports.
