Make+Think+Code Workshops at PNCA

0

Posted on by

A few months back, PNCA started a maker space – but rather than restricting access to just students, they (they, in this case, being Exec Director Nandini Ranganathan) did something very smart…  and actually somewhat unprecedented.  They opened the doors to the entire community.

Yes, you heard right – anyone can apply for a swipe card that allows you to come in and use the space and tools available, day or night.

It’s quite a tasty collection of gear, and it continues to get better.  Computer workstations decked out with maker software, the prerequisite awesome 3D printers, a laser cutter, a CNC mill, fun VR setups like HTC Vives, large format printers (paper plotters, that is).  I could go on.

Now, they are taking the next logical step and have launched a series of workshops aimed at bringing together the awesome makers, thinkers, and coders in our community.  Of all levels.  Modeling in Blender, tweaking Arduino circuits, collaging light, projection mapping, basics of Unity…   not to sound like a broken record, but I could go on.

If you want in on the fun, you need to check out the full menu here, now.  These workshops are starting up soon, many as soon as next week.

It’s almost enough to turn this VFX “faker” into a maker, that’s for sure!  🙂

Part of our continuing workshop series aimed at keeping Portland up to date on the latest and greatest when it comes to post production, we bring you a special evening with Davinci Resolve 14. Dave Jahns (Joint) and Blackmagic Design bring you a hands-on look at what’s new with Davinci Resolve 14.

Blackmagic continues to expand and innovate the Davinci Resolve toolset, and with version 14 comes a major step forward via an extensive set of audio tools, facial tracking and correction, and reduced Studio level pricing to compliment the robust free version.  Resolve has never been more real and relevant, and whether you’re a seasoned colorist or a student just starting to look into editing and color tools, you’ll stand to get a heavy dose of the workflow and capabilities inherent to Davinci Resolve 14 in one tightly packed evening, with both our hometown presenters as well as a pair of  Blackmagic Product Specialists (Shawn Carlson and Rony Soussan) up from LA.

We will be giving away a license of Davinci Resolve 14 Studio as well as a license of Fusion 8 Studio at the end of the workshop.  You must be present to win.

Dave Jahns – Lead Colorist, W+K’s Joint Editorialheadlining project demo, workflows, and breakdowns.

This all takes place the evening of Wednesday, June 21st, from 6pm-9pm, graciously hosted & sponsored by the Art Institute, in their capable PC lab.  Space is very limited (20 workstations in the lab + about 10 extra non-workstation seats) and we expect this to fill up quickly, so reserve your spot now here:
