    NAB 2012

    April 15, 2012, 11:01 am
    Ever since entering the entertainment business as an adult (meaning after film school, because before, we had no idea what NAB was, nor had any money to make the trek to Vegas...), I've made an effort to see the show. Now, attending for my 15th year, I realize that the show itself is much like my experiences fishing with my dad. Early on, in both scenarios, it was a magical world.

      Former Look Effects president responds to 'anonym

      August 21, 2014, 12:44 pm
      NEW YORK — Last week, I received an “Anonymous” email with a letter attached to it that was said to have been prepared by a core group of former Look Effects employees. The visual effects studio, which had four locations — Brooklyn, Los Angeles, Vancouver and Germany — recently closed, and many of its employees were not given their un-paid wages, some amounting to as much as $50,000.

      SIGGRAPH 2014: Fabric Engine's potential for VFX

      August 15, 2014, 4:45 am
      Fabric Engine is a visual framework for rapid development of custom 3D VFX tools that are as fast as dedicated custom "written from scratch" applications, but without the usual costs in time and resources. It does this by providing a core, node-based GUI development environment that can take full advantage of the computer's GPU. Much of the overhead and time involved in developing a standard one-off application is taken up in user interface and basic data IO. Fabric Engine can generate st...
