Davide Pagin, Senior Character Artist, ILM XLab San Francisco

BigRock represented for me a way to change my career from advertising graphics. I could acquire important technical skills and realise what are the basics to join the industry. Maybe more important than this were all the friendships and networks I made, which I'm keeping nowadays and always rely on for improving myself in my job.


BigRock has four main Master courses: Computer Graphics, Videogames, Concept Art and Sound Production. Our classes are all full-time semestral courses. The high intensity program is extremely efficient in terms of growth for a young artist and set BigRock as the leading school in Italy, with many competitors trying to replicate the same model.
