Industry Workshops is a collective of London based creatives with a shared interest in establishing a broad based and vibrant visual arts community through continued education.
Founded by Levente Peterffy, Richard Burns and Daniel Matthews, it now involves many experienced VFX professionals from advertising, film, games and music videos in freelance and studio capacities.
Artist inspired and artist driven, Industry Workshops brings together leading visual effects talents to share their unique approaches. Spanning three extensive days in vibrant London (and with smaller one day events being held throughout the year also ) the event showcases both technical and philosophical aspects of concept art, film, 3D, traditional sketching, digital matte-painting and life drawing (to name just a few). Industry Workshops also connects the attendee and lecturer. Through interaction, discussion panels, recruitment and portfolio reviewing we strive to build a learning and thriving visual fx community.
Industry Workshops knows the importance of good food and drink, that's why we also offer this for free during the whole event.
