Francesco Tammaccaro (Frank’s Pencil)

Hi all! My name is Francesco and I am a multimedia artist currently based in Milan, Italy.

For more than 10 years I have been working on multimedia art, video games and advertising as an Illustrator, animator and sound designer.

After a few years in the video games and Virtual Reality field, I’m back to my main passion: cartoons! At the moment I am mostly working on 2D asset creation, along with 2D and 3D animation, and Sound Design.

Q: Hi Frank! Can you tell us about your background and your work? When, and why did you start working on 2D graphic design?

Drawing, together with music, has always been my passion since I was a child.

When I was a student of Electronic Music at the Conservatory School of Music, there was a lot of interests in Multimedia projects that involved 2D and 3D animation. I was very passionate about it and I started studying it extensively, and offering my help in every project I could work on as an illustrator and animator. My work was appreciated, and I got a lot of encouragement from my teachers and fellow students. I continued developing those skills, and eventually 2D Illustration and 2D animation turned out to be the main part of my job.

Q: Please tell us how you start your content business, and why you chose to use CrazyTalk Animator.

I started the content business by working for Microstock Agencies and Freelancing Platforms. Well, I chose CrazyTalk Animator 3 because it is the perfect software for everyday people, like me, that need to produce animated content in a very limited time and that have to to take care of different aspects of designs from character design to sound design. The output quality is outstanding and the workflow is smooth and customisable. CrazyTalk Animator 3 is just the tool I have been waiting for a long time!

Q: Besides CrazyTalk Animator, what other software do you use? Any samples of your work?

In my work I use Illustrator, Photoshop, After Effects and Logic Pro on a daily basis. Most of my production requires vector illustrations. I usually like to sketch with Photoshop using my tablet, and then work on my final pieces in Illustrator.

Q: Thank you so much for sharing all of this. In the near future, what can the community expect to see from you?

Well, I am growing very passionate about CrazyTalk Animator, so expect me to create more and more content for the store. I like to push the limit of the tools and I try to find new and creative solutions. So I hope I will be able to surprise you!

One thing to mention is that after learning the tool I decided to check out the Reallusion Incubation Program, which gave me the push to become a CTA3 developer. The program is really great as I could apply to get the tools for free, along with direct Reallusion support, and even early funding for my projects!

Additionally, I am also working on a bunch of personal projects that I will share with the community as soon as they are ready! So don’t forget to check out my Reallusion Content Store.
