Machina Infinitum is a two-person creative collaboration of Matteo Scappin and Jesper Nybroe. The duo focuses on 3D fractal animations for music videos, films, festivals, concerts and events; and on the innovative technical implementation of fractal generation in traditional 3D rendering programs.
They have created and released an Octane plug-ins for Cinema4D and Blender and parameter packs that allow users to render infinitely complex fractal objects and harness the power of leading professional rendering software outside of 3D fractal programs like Mandelbulber and Mandelbulb 3D.
Jesper Nybroe hails from Denmark and is now located in Germany. He is a veteran Visual Effects Artist. With almost three decades of experience, he was doing VFX before they were digital. Jesper has been working with some of the best and biggest VFX companies all around the world, and has been involved in countless feature films, music videos, commercials and TV-series, including many award-winning projects.
Jesper was the first Scandinavian Flame Artist, and to this day strongly prefers Flame as a compositing tool.
He first discovered 3D fractals around 2013.

Matteo Scappin is a 3D fractal artist with training in computer science. His interest in fractal geometry began at 10 years old with a fascination in the Mandelbrot set. He began working in 3D fractal art in 2015 with a focus in animations for events. With an interest in education, innovation, and community building, Scappin became an admin of Mandelbulb Maniacs, the largest 3D fractal community on Facebook, in 2017.
In 2018, Jesper and Matteo began their Machina Infinitum collaboration with the goal of merging professional VFX and advanced 3D fractal expertise to create unique, cutting-edge images and animations; and to expand 3D fractal rendering possibilities beyond the programs developed around Mandelbulb imaging.
Highlights of their early collaboration include Mastodon’s ‘Fallen Torches’ video, Eurovision 2019, two VJ loop packs, representation by Mr Benn, and a very impressive show reel.
