Hollywood, California, United States
In 2005, just a year out of high school in his native Italy, Alessandro Schiassi joined a no-budget Internet film called Metal Gear Solid: Philanthropy. Over the next three years of working on the project, Alessandro taught himself digital compositing, match-moving, on-set supervision, color grading, and motion graphics.
The film was lauded by critics and fans for its impressive effects and quickly established Alessandro as one of Italy's premiere VFX artists while still in his mid-twenties. In 2011, Alessandro moved to Los Angeles to start his Hollywood career by taking on the challenge of creating all of the visual effects for Stitch, a dark fantasy feature starring Edward Furlong.
Meanwhile he worked for several YouTube A-list channels like FreddieW, CorridorDigital, MysteryGuitarMan, DevinSuperTramp, and most recently Stan Lee's World Of Heroes.
