Iacopo Tumino was born in Rome in April of 1982 and, during his first years of life, he showed an interest in motion graphic design and in free-hand designs too--especially natural and archaeological landscapes. In those days, he made his first stop-motion animations (his house was full of paper). Tumino's animations weren't complicated at first, but they became more and more complicated over time. As he grew, so did his passion for design. He chose to attend the IED (Istituto Europeo di Design), a famous design institute in Europe, where he learned to use Maya, now his favorite software program. Tumino graduated after three crazy years. Now he works with his friends and associates on some important projects in Italy. Tumino serves as director & CG supervisor at Templum Miraculorum, a digital design studio in Rome. In his free time, he enjoys playing football, listening to new age music and movie soundtracks, watching movies, and dreaming of new ideas for my passion: my job.
