The motion design industry has come a long way the past 20 years with new 3D and 2D software and rendering technologies making this year’s Half Rez event an exciting time to trace our history, celebrate the present, and discuss future trends that will allow artists to realize their creative vision.
Nick Campbell, Greyscalegorilla site host and motion graphics designer/trainer and event founder.
Half Rez is about learning and making connections with like minded-people at all stages of their career. This year we expect over 350 people – our largest attendee number to date – and have an incredible line up of presenters discussing not only the history of our industry and where we’re heading but who also will provide first-hand experiences on how creative professionals and beginners can grow their business or enter the industry. We’ve also got more prizes than ever before with over 30 software giveaways.
Chris Schmidt, Greyscalegorilla director of 3D product development and Half Rez co-organizer
Greyscalegorilla is one of the most comprehensive online destinations for 3D tools and training and the team does an outstanding job of providing tutorials, plug-ins, and more, that help our Cinema 4D customers add 3D workflow to their design projects. We’re excited to continue our sponsorship of Half Rez, a growing and important event that gives us an opportunity to meet face-to-face with the 3D creative community, in a fun, party-like venue.
