The weekend of April 30th & May 1st, 2011 is the Evolve Animation Conference to be held in Orlando, Florida.  


"The Evolve CG conference is designed to offer guidance to students interested in breaking into the computer animation industry with the help of established industry specialists in preparing demo reels, resumes and more. Evolve CG joins computer graphic professionals and recruiters, in delivering multiple high end classes taught by some of the most renowned experienced artists from the most celebrated studios around the world."

This year I will be presenting a lecture on Rendering and Compositing Workflows featuring the new releases of Autodesk 3ds Max 2012 and Autodesk Composite 2012.  I'll probably focus around mental ray & iRay rendering, some tricks with render elements and passes and then ultimately slapping it all together in Composite for final look treatments.


Evolve also includes a huge job fair for people and there are also many other speakers at this event.  I know personally i'm looking forward to hearing Shane Acker speak about his award winning CGI film, "9" (Prdoced by Tim Burton).  Really an inspiration when you consider his feature film directorial debut came out of a animated short he did on a shoe-string budget.

'hope to see ya there!

Hey Gary, Thanks for coming out to Evolve this year and giving that demo. It was very informative and fun to sit in on. Im a 3DS Max user too and I love the program. I need to get 2012 so I can start messing with iRay. The renders it produces are really nice. Thanks again.

Amazing speech and in the very short time that you had the stage I learned more about the possibilities of this program than I could ever imagine! I am currently downloading 3dsMax 2012 just to try out all the new features with the impressive titles. Thank you so much for taking the time to talk to us students, it means the world when someone who has already made it in the industry and has made a name for himself takes the time to talk to us. It is akin to being starstruck and I know that if ever you are holding another speech, get together, seminar, what-have-you I will be in attendance. Again, thank you so much and I hope you enjoyed being home in Orlando. Lazaro Facio
