All About Me
My name is William Gabriele and I am a Character Rigger TD, working in the Animation/VFX industry since 2013.
At the beginning of my career I had the opportunity to work at The Imaginarium Studios, founded by Andy Serkis. The Imaginarium is Europe's leading Performance Capture studio and production company.
This experience gave me the chance to push my mind finding and implementing new technical solutions to the existing Rigging/Solving workflow.
My next experience was at MPC London, wonderful involvement, in a such a massive company. I improved even more my team working skills and of course my rigging skills focusing on my passion for Body Deformation.
I worked at Framestore London, I had the occasion to concentrate 100% on Muscle Body Deformation, realizing day by day that this is my way, keen on the details I want to afford.
Currently I'm working at Double Negative continuing my journey as Lead Creature TD.
VFX Speaker and Mentor
2017 was the year where I started to attend multiple events as Framestore speaker.
One of my greatest desire as always been to inspire and motivate students to reach their professional goals.
I showed a bit of Framestore's magic and the work I did on the latest projects around the Europe.

William is a fantastic speaker, and he was so engaging speaking about 'Fantastic Beasts'. The public was excited hearing about the secrets behind the scenes at Future Film Festival 2017.
GIULIETTA FARA - DIRECTOR - FUTURE FILM FESTIVAL 2017
I had the privilege to meet William Gabriele at Future Film Festival.
What can I say about him?
He’s honestly pure magic. His pep talk not only let people know about the real magic happening in movies like Fantastic Beasts and where to find them: he knows how to inspire people.
You just have to look into his eyes to see how much he loves his job and he is able to show it to everyone in the room. William Gabriele in three words? Lively, professional, enthusiastic.
GIADA SARTORI - STUDENT - FUTURE FILM FESTIVAL 2017
This man... What an inspiration! Part of the team with Framestore on loads of projects, after an epic talk... An awesome pep talk.
Supporting the up and coming students... "Even if you're alone, belief in your dream is key”.
PAUL NOBLE-HENTY - CHARACTER ANIMATOR - ANIMEX 2017
William's talk on his work on Fantastic Beasts was truly inspiring! I thoroughly enjoyed watching Fantastic Beasts, so it was amazing to see all the hard work that had gone into the production.
As a student aspiring to become a rigger, William's presentation was extremely insightful, as it covered the various workflows used, rigging practises required and the importance of anatomy in rigging. His work has encouraged me to keep practising everyday to become a better rigger!
COMPUTER ANIMATION AND VISUAL EFFECTS GRADUATE
Meeting William was quite inspirational. He has this amazing ability to share his skills and enthusiasm with people and he surely is a tremendous speaker!
Having him in the Annecy VFX conferences was altogether a professional satisfaction and a very nice human encounter.
RENÉ BOCA - ANNECY CONFERENCES EDITORIAL MANAGER - ANNECY 2017
William has been a first choice overall for the 2017 edition and we were honoured to host him.
His speech was beyond expectations. He showed Framestore’s pipeline under Fantastic Beasts in a delightful way, from the simplest side for new-entry students to the hardest nerd part for the ambitious artists.
He also encouraged people to follow their dreams and be perseverant during their career in visual effects, and that was the most important thing above all. We use these kind of events to make students aware that everything is possible, and William helped us a lot with his presence.
We strongly hope to have the chance to host him again in the future.

Meeting William at the BigDay 2017 was a great experience. He’s very skilled, professional and truly engaging.
William can be considered a valid reference point from which you can only learn.
