FX Artist journey – Breaking into the industry with Emily Fung
Join us for an evening with FX artist Emily Fung as she talks about her journey from student to Technical Artist at SideFX, working on marketing demo materials for the Houdini 18 and 18.5 releases! Plus, get an inside look at the new Lenovo ThinkPad P1 Gen 4 mobile workstation she’ll be using during a live Houdini session, covering procedural modeling, as well as Vellum cloth and pyro simulations.
During this exclusive livestream event, Emily will talk about her artistic journey including her education in the UK, her work on Dumbo, The Lion King and The Crown, as well as her experience moving to North America and interning at SideFX.
Viewers will get a detailed overview of life as both an Intern and Technical Artist including opportunities to work with developers, visit studios, and contribute to magazines and other publications.
This is a great chance for aspiring FX artists to learn what it’s like to get started in the industry, and for more seasoned artists to discover software tips and tricks!
Following Emily’s live demo, focused on the breakdown of two pyro projects – the pyro trails seen in Houdini 18.5 release and a fire hall personal project, we will welcome two more guests to the stream. SideFX Technical Marketing Lead Fianna Wong and Rob Hoffman, Worldwide Media & Entertainment Manager for Lenovo Workstations, will join Emily for a Q&A to answer all your software, hardware, and artists’ journey questions!
Watch the stream on the Gnomon Twitch Channel, YouTube Channel, and Facebook Live on Thursday, July 15th at 7:30 pm PDT.
