Free Webinar: The Art of Oscar-Winning 3D Modeling
As part of our Industry Webinar Program, we’ve teamed up with one of London’s most respected senior modellers, Adam Dewhirst (he was the guy responsible for those glorious Polar bears in the Golden Compass). We’re no stranger to Adam, as he not only studied with us, he’s also a permanent member of our Advisory Board, helping us ensure our curriculum is even more industry tailor-made. Adam has worked with leading VFX studios to create memorable CG characters for the big screen - some of which landed him and his team an Oscar as well as a BAFTA.
What will I learn from the webinar?
This is a real WOW webinar. Taking some examples from his time on Clash of the Titans, Xmen, Prince of Persia and Dark Knight, Adam will illustrate how 3D artists will manage to deliver 13 different characters in a mere 3 days and other cool tips like how to transfer UV's or use multiple UV tiles within a production. Discover how VFX studios really work - reusing models to keep pipelines consistent, creating accurate doubles from lidar scan data and methods for transferring new topology to existing models and rigs.
3D modeling is one of the very first skills you’ll learn on our Visual Effects course. The backbone for all convincing 3D VFX, it requires a strong knowledge of topology, form, texture and detail. In every class we find someone with a natural flare for this craft and 8 years ago Adam Dewhirst was one such person – could you be next? Join us on the webinar and find out!
