View Conference 2011 : 3 workshops

Published on

At the end of this october 2011, I have the honnor to present 3 epic workshops.
Why 'epicness' ?
... let me explain :

  1. The 3 workshops will be in Turin ( Italia , but workshop will be done in english ) during the View Conference a place where happen conferences of the best artist of Pixar, Sony pictures, Weta digital , ILM , Dreamworks etc...etc...
  2. Wacom sponsorize my workshops, and will provide tablets, Intuos 4 I guess. Good to see Wacom helping FLOSS
  3. All workshop will be done on "Sala Sella" at Centro Congressi Torino Incontra, a beautifull room ( photo on the header )
  4. If you are a Blender head, you will meet famous open-source CG artist around: Sebastian König (Mango) , Enrico Valenza (BBB) , etc ;)

I hope I will meet all of you on my workshop ( as well as all my Italian friends from Comicon, View Conference and Top-ix from last year ) ; bring your laptop and tablet, with Gimp-painter installed on your system and Mypaint. The room have enough place on desk to let you experiment with your system during the workshop. And even if you have Photoshop or Corel painter, or another digital painting program , no problem.

Workshop theme : speedpainting for pre-production workshop

Building a bridge between our imagination and a picture result is the faster way to help a production . Previsualisation / Concept art / etc... all depend on our capacity to picture mental representation and apply them to a digital canvas. On what to focus ? how to organise our-self ? How the tools can help us ? are FLOSS softwares ready for that ?
I will do my best to show you how I tranform words and idea into pictures for the entertainement industry.
The 3 workshops will around this topic, with different scenes for each of them, so you can follow the 3 or just come for the last one without any problems.

Hello Mr. Revoy
I'm putting together a schedule to get the most out of the View Conference. Can you please add, for each day, the scenes that will be presented?


link David Revoy Author,

@Mauro : The 3 workshops will around the same topic , speedpainting for pre-production , with different scenes/painting for each of them, so you can follow the 3 or just come to a random one without any problems.Each of the workshop will have the same mini introduction ( my presentation , and presentation of the workshop )  but the workshop main exercise and techniques will be different each time ... Depending on inspiration and students ; I will adapt myself to my public. ( depend average skill of student ). See you there ;)
