Blender

9 ноември, сряда, 20:00 часа
Дом на киното
ул. Екзарх Йосиф 37, София

Прясно завърнали се от тазгодишната Blender конференция в Амстердам, в рамките на TOSMI 2011: Advanced Blender, Басам Курдали и Себастиан Кьониг ще направят публична презентация в София, на която ще покажат последните си проекти, ще споделят горещи новини от конференцията, ще ни разкажат за новостите около Blender 2.6a и подробности от кухнята на тазгодишния TOSMI.


Себастиан ще говори по-конретно за тракинг и композитинг с Blender, ще сподели новини около току що стартиралия проект Mango – кратък филм с визуални ефекти и актьори и ще представи своята роля в неговата реализация.

Басам ще сподели предизвикателствата на продукционния процес на нанастоящи си филмов проект - Tube, фокусирайки се върху ригинг, анимация и pipeline – тема, която беше и в центъра на дискусиите в майсторския клас по анимация в Амстердам, ръководен от него през изминалата седмица. Той ще представи също някои от последните приложение в Blender и ще сподели интригуваща информация около планираните новости в Blender 3Д през следващата година.

За да се настроите за събитието ви предлагаме да погледнете този кратък репортаж от тазгодишната Blender конференция.

Презентацията ще се проведе на английски език и ще завърши с въпроси и отговори. Входът е свободен.
