Siggraph is over and what a ride it was. Ultimately I think a good time was had by all. I hope a lot of you that didn't make it to the show had a chance to check out the live streams on AREA. If not my current task is to take the high res captures of everything we did and post them up on the AREA.
Its only a couple weeks away and Autodesk is very busy this year. Even if you won't actually be in LA this year come to the AREA to see live video of our events as they happen.
For those of you that have upgraded to firefox 3 I just wanted to let you know that AREA currently doesn't officially support it. We have every intention to do so but right now there are too many bugs in this release. Once a few service packs have come out we will re-assess.
Just a heads up that Louis has complete moving all his backlog of 3ds max tips videos to the AREA.
Hey everyone, I thought it was time to give an update on the AREA v2. We have many people scurrying around frantically bolting pieces together to ensure that we push this thing out the door by Siggraph, our one year anniversary. Here is a quick item list of some of the changes for V2 as well as a screen shot of the home page...
When you work as a demo artist you get used to being asked a lot of questions about software, technique, getting a job and the industry in general. I found a number of questions came up over and over again and you end up answering them over and over again. One of our 3ds Max Demo Artists, Louis Marcoux, decided to save himself some time and start creating mini videos for those common questions. When he was asked a question Louis could just send the video and everyone was happy. Well, Louis is known for going overboard with everything he starts (bless him) and ended up creating so many videos that he finally made a personal site for them. I highly recommend checking it out.
For those of you that haven't heard yet, my team is currently in full swing on AREA v2. The next version will be based on a much more flexible engine which will allow for more rapid changes to the site. I know everyone is asking and yes we will get new forums with little things like emoticons, signature lines and yes, heaven forbid, the ability to post images in your messages. I know it all sounds so novel. ;-)
We just posted one of the profiles I shot this last fall. If you remember back to an earlier blog entry I talked about doing a shoot at Neoscape in Boston. Now you can see the video in the Showcase area
Hey everyone, I'm starting to get my head above water in the new job. I have just landed in rainy LA and in a moments free time I thought I'd blog. I have a backlog of videos from before I took over managing the AREA that I am getting posted over the next week or so. A lot of the content going up this week will be about design visualization. this content tends to clump up around the end of the year due to Autodesks big show Autodesk University. If you are in the world of design and have not gone to that event you really should. There are literally hundreds of classes and events for all parts of the industry. There's my honest sales pitch and now for the good stuff, the art. The first new piece up is the 2006 design visualization reel
So here is the big news (for me at least). I have moved to a new position in the company. I now manage video production, client relations and...wait for it... The AREA.
