'An Organic Approach to Special Effects Animation'
Joseph Gilland's powerful visual effects workshop brings the participant back to the underlying principles that drive all the elements, and opens the visual effects artist's eyes to the often forgotten world of natural visual effects that surrounds us.
This workshop is of vital importance for CGI Visual Effects artists who often miss out on learning about the organic study of natural visual effects, and over 80 years of classical special effects animation insight and know-how. Elemental Magic opens the door to vastly improving every effect an artist using digital tools is called upon to create!
Elemental Magic focuses on what it is that really makes the elements tick. Whether it be fluids, fire, smoke, magic or apocalyptic explosions! This workshop reminds us that really understanding visual effects is a life long study of nature, and the natural world all around us, as well as inside of us. Joseph reminds us emphatically, that we are not 'digital' artists, we are organic beings in an organic world using digital tools. And remembering this and exploiting it, empowers us to be far more creative as visual effects artists.
Prices for the Elemental Magic workshops are determined independently for each school, festival or conference, based on the needs and resources of the client. Contact Joseph for additional information.
