My name is Thomas Marinello, I have been working in Los Angeles for over 18 years as Motion Graphics, Visual Effects and Web Developer. My participation includes working on more than one hundred and fifty movie trailers and TV spots, including theatrical trailers and effects for movies such as:

"Purple Violets” (Title Graphics)
"The Air I Breathe” (Title Graphics)
“The Lazarus Project” (Title Graphics)
“Soldiers of Fortune” (Visual Effects)
“Slightly Single in LA” (Visual Effects)

During the past 18 years I have been working under the banner  "Invisible Films": a company that I co-own with my editor partner. I am very proficient with graphics and effects, and I create 3D animation and motion graphics on a very high level.

I'm always looking for new and interesting full-time or freelance projects.
