Loïc Ciccone

Research Area: VFX

I have always been passionate about the mix between art and technology required by animation and visual effects. This passion led me to a PhD at the Computer Graphics Laboratory of ETH Zürich, where I focused on the creation of intuitive tools for the control of 3D animations. After my graduation in 2019, I joined Verity Studios as a Drone Show Choreography Programmer. There, I could apply my knowledge of animation techniques and interfaces on another type of entertainment, still mixing art and science.

Today, I am very happy to be part of DisneyResearch|Studios. As a research engineer in the VFX group, I have the chance to contribute to the tools that will boost tomorrow’s visual effects.
