GenArts Sponsors Upcoming Popular Nuke WebinarCenter for New Media Studies and Steve Wright are pleased to announce the addition of GenArts as a Bronze Sponsor (January 20, 2010)
This free “how-to” webinar, scheduled for January 26, 2010 at 10 PST, will lift the hood of Nuke to reveal those unique features that make it the hot new power tool in the visual effects production pipeline.
“Nuke is moving the boundaries between the 2D and 3D departments so that more and more of the work is being done in the 2D department where it is faster and more cost effective.” stated Steve Wright, senior digital compositor, Nuke trainer, and the webinar presenter.
“In addition to the great content that Steve Wright will present, The Foundry will also be giving away one free Nuke license plus a year of support valued at $4500 during the webinar.” stated Marcelo Lewin, Founder and CEO of Center For New Media Studies, the producer of this webinar, “All of our sponsors have graciously donated many prizes to give away during this webinar and we are extremely thankful to all of them for doing so!”
As an added bonus GenArts is also contributing two copies of the Sapphire Plug-Ins for Nuke package to give away to 2 lucky attendees. This prize is to be added to the large list of giveaways from all of our sponsors for attendees of the “What’s So Hot About Nuke?” webinar.
“As visual effects have become essential to the art of storytelling, GenArts Sapphire has emerged as the go-to tool in the arsenal of many of the world's best artists and editors. 13 consecutive years of Academy Award nominated films give Sapphire an unmatched pedigree that make it an ideal companion to Nuke”, stated Steve Bannerman, Chief Marketing Officer of GenArts. “This webinar is a great way for artists to discover the full potential of Nuke, and how visual effects tools like Sapphire can unleash their imagination.”
