A Career in VFX… a world of possibility!

A Career in VFX… a world of possibility!

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a career in Visual Effects is far from boring. As far as careers go, this is an industry that keeps us on our toes, offering us a never ending number of new creative project ideas to be realised, fun new problems to be solved and new technologies to be developed. This is an industry that constantly pushes us to learn and discover more.

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!

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.

I feel like a right Planck in this Lycra!

I feel like a right Planck in this Lycra!

Thanks to the Max Planck institute for Informatics, actors may be spared the embarrassment of wearing the ever so flattering lycra body suits when it comes to shooting scenes laden with VFX.

Aw, Here it goes!

Aw, Here it goes!

Nickelodeon has come a long way from the days of Kenan and Kel, Saved by the Bell, Rocket Power, Doug, and Hey Arnold! (just a handful of my personal favourites) and it’s fair to say that considering this most recent announcement, the level of broadcast on kids television is becoming ever more sophisticated.

The Uncanny Valley is close!

The Uncanny Valley is close!

Readers of our blog out there will remember a piece we posted a few weeks back about the concept of ‘the uncanny valley’, and I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s pretty darn weird in action!

Davi Stein meets Davy Jones!

Davi Stein meets Davy Jones!

This morning, Escape Relationship Manager Anita Gribble and Head of 2D Davi Stein, took students on a trip to the heart of the West End – to see the newly opened Double Negative facility in Great Portland Street, which opened just 3 months ago! As is always the case with our studio visits, everyone set off early with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and a hunger for adventure.

Check out this Stash!

Check out this Stash!

A great mash up of some amazing VFX, motion and animation work collated by the guys at Stash. Titled ‘Stash 98: Another 100 minutes of motion brilliance’ this one and a half minutes of footage is a showcase collaboration of clips that are tantalising for the eyes.
