While at MICA, Michael Milano '09 took a course in motion graphics. “That’s when I found out that was really what I wanted to do in design,” the 2009 graphic design major said. In 2010, he’d moved to Los Angeles and landed a job at Sassoon Film Design. While there, he worked his way up from rotoscoping to compositing, and had the opportunity to work on such films as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, The Green Hornet, and The Smurfs, where he converted film from 2-D to 3-D.
Though the 16-hour days have at times been challenging, Milano has enjoyed every step and is excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. “I’m willing to do whatever it takes,” he said.
