More About Marco Holland
Hi! My name’s Marco. I grew up in Turin, in Northern Italy. Eldest son of a Sicilian father and a Dutch mother, my friends came up with Holland as a nickname for me. I work as a freelance motion grapher from 8 years now, and I teach visual effects and compositing at the ITS Tecnologia per la Comunicazione school. Anyhow, this is where I should be talking about my degree in cinema, and the college where I spent the best years of my life… but actually, I’d rather talk about what I think were my two “best schools”.
The first one was simply being a child and off school. Every summer and winter holidays I visited by my grandparents in Holland. There, I spent a lot of time watching movies in movie theatres, because I could go all day long and for free! That was because my Dutch grandfather, Fritz Weijschede, was a movie theatre manager of some theatres in Leeuwarden. This was my best school ever! So it is to him I dedicate my work.
My second school were video games. My passion for video games started in the 80′s! All the time I spent with my old Commodore Amiga watching every pixel on the screen! But, you know, school is not everything. Most of it is up to you. I still remember that my favorite child game was putting toy cars in long lines all the way across the floor and move them one after one keeping the line. So I think that’s it, patience and orderly attitude and all the rest will blossom in your motion grapher profession!
