carlo vega describes himself as "the closer" or "the last call of defense" in the vfx department. if there's a problem, go to carlo, who has worked in various levels within dft's vfx department and has over 12 years of vfx experience. "if an artist is struggling or having an issue or we just can't get something to where it needs to be, that's when i step in, and i just get it done in five minutes." but that wasn't always the case: even five years ago, something that takes carlo a few hours would take him three days. experience, teamwork, a deep understanding of the intersection of art and technology, and a healthy, motivating mindset has helped carlo get to a place where he works quick as lightning. carlo's work mentality comes from conan o'brien, who said, "if you work hard and you're kind, great things will happen."" carlo is tailor-made for working in vfx, as he enjoys doing a lot of things at once as well as witnessing his quantifiable growth in real time. "you get like a dopamine blast from it," he says.

current obsession: tom cruise action movies. i love his dedication to filmmaking while putting himself in actual danger, even as he enters his 60s!!
