CG Futures 2018: The Art of Entertainment
CG Futures provides a unique opportunity to hone skills and meet up with fellow digital artists. This special live event from March 2 – 4 in Melbourne offers a look inside the techniques and experience of some of the world’s most talented VFX and animation artists.
CG Futures is the evolution of the Gnomon Live events presented in Melbourne and Sydney in 2016 and 2017. With continued curatorial support from Alex Alvarez, founder of Gnomon, CG Futures evolves to three full days with extended content from the local industry.
The program provides a chance to meet up with peers and local industry leaders to explore opportunities and issues for artists in the region and to take part in master classes and live demos with some of the most influential artists in the film, games, and VFX industry. It is a chance to hear from local studios about current projects, their studio culture, who they are employing and issues relevant to the local industry. Be inspired and motivated to reach your own levels of mastery and triumph.
