My name is Andrea Lazzarotti and I've been working in the field of computer graphics for the past 10 years. I currently work at TAXFREE FILM of Parma in Italy, in the advertising industry. You can see some of my work here:

I took inspiration from my old Canon Super 8 camera to create this little robot. I really love the vintage look of that camera and the very solid materials that it's made from. I first took some reference photos to get an idea about the forms, materials and color combinations. Obviously I did not want to do an exact replica, but it helped to add a touch of vintage to my creation (Fig.01 - 02).



With a new piece I usually start by making some sketches on paper to create the starting form, but in this case I went for a direct approach and started in 3D. I experimented with the body and arms until I found a good form.

I began with a sphere and built the initial chassis around it (Fig.03 - 04), trying to create a simple, but functional, design. I did the same for the arms, trying not to stray too far from the style that characterized the technology of the time of the Super 8 (Fig.05).
