Quick thanks and a shout out to Orland Nutt and Ben Luce for their great presentations at the last meeting. Powering through some technical difficulties with the presentation laptop being at a different aspect ratio from the screen that was being projected, Ben’s pixel art technique was well received by all. “That’s how everyone is getting that retro 8bit look!” (or in Ben’s case, 16 bit – “Super Nintendo!”) was a phrase heard many times after the meeting. It made for an explosive demo, if the “oohs” and “aaahs” were any indication every time Ben said, “Boom!”
And thanks to Orland for rolling with the punches when we couldn’t read his hard drive, and doing the presentation entirely from Vimeo clips. He has some rare before/after footage from Bear of Heaven that hopefully will see the light of day somehow – we’re working on it! In any case, unforgettable imagery from Orland and a huge thanks for taking the time out.
The Ebay Lounge was a great venue with the only flaw being we couldn’t figure out how to turn down the automated lights to help better view the projector. A small glitch in an otherwise fantastic setup and the Ebay office may very well become the default for future meetings.
Next up – a big night of SideFX Houdini is being planned for April. Will keep you informed… watch this space!
