GILLES KETTING

GILLES KETTING

Fix up and look sharp, because we have none other than Gilles Ketting, IW's super hunk in the building.

If your not lost in his eyes then your certainly lost in his gorgeous brush strokes. That is, if your not already lost in the intense mood of the Ashen falls work, Gille's passion project.
We welcome him back to grace our demo screens and show us all how to do it! 
He might even share his brush pack.
Bring a wetsuit, as we are going to get Lost at Sea (see what i did there :P)

Ohhhh so much goodness to include with this announcement. That’s right, Oculus Medium are coming to IW with a dedicated VR room with professional teachers, running classes several times a day for over a dozen lucky attendees at a time, in which you’ll get to grips with the forefront of interactive design techniques. We’ll also be running VR sculpt battles, and spread the love to our Demo Area also. Those of you who have leapt into the headset will know how powerful this technology is, and how it will undoubtedly change the future of the creative arts.

NICOLA RUSSI

NICOLA RUSSI

Nicola Russi was supposed to be a pizza baker. His destiny was written, but the animation god Walt Bluthazaki had other plans for him. He injected the helpless pizzaboy with all the animation principles and the necessary talents to forge him into a real professional animator.
Six years are gone now, and since then Nico has animated angry raccoons, flying super heroes, wild animals, rusty robots and other unmentionable goodies,
with his usual push to extend the boundries of his knowledge and to spread the good tidings of the holy animation realm.
Nevertheless, he still prefers pizza.
