Sara Menegazzi
Concept and Storyboard Artist
Padova, Italy

Summary

Senior artist with 9 years of related experience in the entertainment industry, from theme park design to VFX and animation.
I have a keen interest in storytelling, design and more generally in the art of inventing since my childhood when my grandad showed me how to make a little electrical circuit with lights and a battery.
I always look for the best way to express my clients' vision through my images, getting the job done on time and exactly how it was imagined is my everyday fulfilment.

If you are looking for a pro-active and reliable artist who have a 3D thinking way of creating concepts, or a cheerful person to chat about art and technology, reach me out!
