Take your VFX skills for a test drive!

Take your VFX skills for a test drive!

Finding the time to hone ones skills is more often than not more a troublesome task than finding the will to learn. In a busy world it’s never as simple as signing up for a fulltime course and cracking on with it.

MPC work their magic in epic new Samsung ad!

MPC work their magic in epic new Samsung ad!

The ad above created by MPC, is one of the most epic of the year so far. From a herd of wildebeest, to a T-Rex, to an explosive alien invasion, this one and a half minute clip, set in an empty city, shows a laid back viewer in control of this multiverse, and being rather apathetic to the radical changes occurring around him.

GMUNK: Get Creative to Progress Your Career in VFX

It's very easy to lose creative motivation and it's something every artist will experience at some stage in their career. We all got into Visual Effects to work in a creative career, so why stop living the dream? To remain on the cutting edge of creativity, sometimes you need to take yourself out of your comfort zone and remind yourself of the things in VFX that speak to you the loudest - because ultimately that’s what will drive your best work.

Spartacus: War of the Damned has been brought to life by some serious green screen action!

If like me you’ve been eagerly anticipating every weekend for the time when you can stream the latest episode of Spartacus: War of the Damned,  you’ll know that this weekend was the penultimate episode of arguably the most fantastically gory series ever to hit television screens.

TMNT starts filming!

TMNT starts filming!

I can still remember being five years old and fashioning two back pack holsters for my toy swords, out of plastic drinks bottles in homage to Leonardo, my favourite member of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles troupe.

Jurassic Park 4 favours continuity over science!

Jurassic Park 4 favours continuity over science!

Are you familiar with the phrase ‘never let the truth get in the way of a good story’? Well it seems the Jurassic Park universe is adhering to this rule for its 4th instalment.
