Every time you read our stories, I bet you'd like to get to know them a bit better. Well, if you're thinking that, we've got the perfect solution to the problem! I've interviewed each of our writers to get a better understanding of who everyone is. The next person in our series is Sergio Rosa.
Renderosity Magazine: Tell me a little bit about yourself.
Well, I've been a Renderosity member since 1998 or 1999 when I saw Poser for the first time, although I had been using 3d applications for a couple of years before that. Right now I work as a game developer in my own company, and I hope I can stick to that job for a long time. Before that, I used to work in media production, and I also made a couple of animated short films, (movies was pretty much the reason why I got into animation) but it didn't quite work as I expected, because when I was trying to do that, there was no film industry in my country (we still don't have a film industry, but at least it's better than 10 years ago).
Sergio: Why did you want to become a writer?
I've always liked to write, and I find it interesting to tell stories and create characters. Maybe it's a way to travel to different places or worlds. What I do know is that writing stories is one of the best thins ever. I got into animation because of movies, but I wanted to get into movies because of writing. Now that I am a game developer, I followed the same ideals, and that's why I focus on story-driven games.
What inspired you to write?
I don't think I can find a single thing. I find most of my inspiration on people I meet. For example, at some point ,I may meet someone with an interesting story, or rather a story that I find interesting, and that serves as a starting point. Sometimes it's about things I read or hear, or about different kinds of emotions. Even if my stories have "weird" themes, you can see that the basic element is related to people in one way or another.
What is your favorite food?
That would be pasta.
What kind of music do you listen to?
Almost anything, like old rock, metal, instrumental music, and gothic metal.
What do you do in your spare time?
Spare time? Does that even exist? Even on my "spare time" I end up making notes and stuff about things that might eventually become future projects.
