BEFORE CG...

Giancarlo worked as Professional Graphic Illustrator for six years before he get caught on the Computer Graphics Age, when he started working as Illustrator, storyboard artist, production designer and computer graphic designer for NOFRONTIERE, a company founded by the Art Director (and long time friend and mentor) Andrea Steinfl.

While finishing his studies as Graphic Illustrator at the European Institute of Design in Rome, he started working as a Professional Illustrator, which lend him an exclusive contract to national publisher Mondadori to make all covers for Italian business magazine "ESPANSIONE".
His clients also included:
THUNDESIGN, MACCANN ERICKSON, G&Z, STUDIO PIU', MONTEDISON, RCS RIZZOLI.

Giancarlo Lari started working on feature at the unripe age of 16: his first movie he worked as production illustrator was the widely unknown feature Brother from space, a film that could be put right next to great movies of all times like "Plan B from outer space"
(if actually it would have been made at all...)
He also worked for one year as Assistant of Set Photographer Emilio Lari, where he learned the basics of professional photography.
