5 Gifts that your VFX loving friend will go mad for this Christmas!

This year we’ve discovered that governments can access our e-mails, texts, phone calls and basically any form of electronic communication you may have with the outside world, but while this personal information isn’t being used by gift websites to help friends/relatives out with Christmas present suggestions, we thought we’d put together a list of must have items for the VFX Artist this Crimbo!

VFX Artist becomes Hollywood Film Director!

VFX Artist becomes Hollywood Film Director!

So we’ve all managed to take a look at the killer new trailer for Godzilla from VFX whiz turned director Gareth Edwards. But what was it about the trailer that grabbed your attention?

Games Consoles: The Next Generation.

Games Consoles: The Next Generation.

Let me start by clarifying; I don't have an Xbone, or a PS4. I haven't even played one yet. So this is a biased article in that respect. While the idea excites me, and if I just happened to have a spare grand to blow I would have picked them up just to have them, but because I need the money for more important things, like food, I'm still making my way through the current generation of games and consoles.

Want to join the Sketch Workshop?

Some products just don’t take much selling, and this project, started by our friends over at 3D Total, falls right into that category.
