Short Biography

Steve DiPaola got involve in today’s technologies when he was still really young.  He got passionate before many others for 3D animation and all its possibilities. His passion for 3D technologies combined with his passion for facial expression push him on the top when he created the awesome Kraftwerk video back in 1987. Breaking all the established rules, he made the first 100% 3D clip.

“I've worked with 3D face animation for 20 years, created the first fully 3D music video using synthetic faces for Kraftwerk and taught the first course solely on facial animation, at Stanford University. I'm still around facial animation everyday but when I go home to do MY work I always turn to Facial Studio - it's fast, flexible and gives me professional results. You can do anything with it.”

After winning for that piece of art :  Image Du Futur, Montreal Animation - Second Place, Nicograph 87, Tokyo Artistic and Technical Achievement Award, Nouvelles Images de Monte Carlo Animation - Third Place; Steve continued his quest for facial deformation and facial expression with 3D tools.

“In my 20 years, I have used every kind of facial animation system, writing many of them myself over the years. Facial Studio gives me the control and professional results I need but with an incredible ease of use.”


As pioneer in 3D animation, Steve worked for such well know clients such as: NEC, MTV, ABC, and Universal Studios. Of course, while working for them, Steve continued his research on facial expression and facial deformation. His research put him in charge of a team at the Advanced Technology Group of entertainment company Electronic Arts.

Facial Studio gives me the professional look and techniques I need, but with virtually none of pain that usually comes with creating and animating high end facial animation.”

Today, Steve DiPaola hands down his passion for 3D animation by teaching at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada. Just like Christopher Columbus who was seeking for a new world, Steve seeks for a new 3D world.


“Working in 3d facial research for 20 years, I was skeptical that an off the shelf plug-in was going to give the look and control I needed. Facial Studio does and with an incredible ease of use to boot. Now I own 3 copies for home, research and teaching!”
