can stop posting this kind of low-quality 'showcase' articles? If I wanna find showcase/reel, I can find them easily on Viemo, cgsociety. Everyone know houdini can be used to do destruction, simulation, etc. there is no need to show another destruction unless posting a helpful 'tutorial'. However, this is not.

Can it produce quads, too?

A lot of incredible events devoted to digital art and gamedev take place annually all over the world: E3, SIGGRAPH, PAX, DevGAMM, Paris Games Week and way more. Bigger or smaller, they combine a high level of professionalism and fun of communication with people who share the strong mutual interest in the industry. DAC-FRA is one of them – it is a relatively young event but there’s no doubt that this is the right place to learn and spend time at with delight. The event will be taking place in Frankfurt, on 5-7 October, 2018.

DAC-FRA is a new Digital Art Conference in Frankfurt where artists of all levels can come together to learn cool stuff, meet new people and enjoy 3 days of inspiring talks, workshops, live demos, portfolio reviews and more. 2017 was their first edition and the whole concept is to have a close connection between speakers and participants. For this reason, they chose to host the conference at a centrally located hostel in Frankfurt, as well as accommodate all speakers there. Participants who choose to stay at the hostel will be fully immersed in the conference for 3 days as well as be able to see and talk to their favorite speakers for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This way the connection between everyone should never be lost and the potential for creative encounters remain high.

During the day the conference is mainly focused on 2D/3D/VFX workshops and lectures from our speakers, while the evening parties will be filled with more relaxing events like fireside talks, live drawing, exhibitions, VR painting and an art battle between participants. Tickets for the evening parties are also available for non-conference participants so they can join everyone for a drink, see some interesting talks and cheer for their favorite artist in the art battle. Thursday evening before the conference there is a pre-conference gathering with the early arrivals, and on Sunday the participants go for an after-party gathering with the stayers.

Among the speakers this year there will be such artists as Alexander Asmus, Andrea Chiampo, Ayran Oberto, Mickael Lelievre, Phil Nguyen and more! Check the full list on the website.

See bits from the previous event on the Dac-Fra website and youtube channel. Also make sure to check their Facebook page where they post the updates, teasers and speaker announcements.

Join in – it will be fun!
