We held the latest 3DMeetup on Thursday, March 7th at Dogpatch Labs. This time we had two VFX Industry speakers focusing on Short Film Post-production and Tool Creation for Animations.
Our first speaker Ben Mars, Character Animator (http://www.benmars.com/) talked about ‘How Not to Make a Short Film.’ Ben prepared a presentation about the different challenges he faced while shooting his short film and the issues they had during post-production. Learning from his mistakes he prepared several notes about how we should approach and overcome these common issues.
The second speaker, Brian Horgan, Freelance Animator (http://www.graphite9.com/) Brian talked about how he developed top selling Animation Tools for Maya, that helped him to gain exposure and recognition in the VFX Industry. He talked us through his thinking process and how he created some of his best selling and most popular tools.
We also kick started the new 3DMeetup Podcast. A show about artists in the Irish CG/VFX industry. Where we Interview artists and some of the people exploring and innovating in the 3D space.
