Join us for two weeks of exclusive online classes in an interactive, community-based event. Each 2-hour class focuses on a different element of the visual effects and games industries.
Each class is offered online in a private forum, allowing you to participate in discussion with the instructor and other students. All instructional videos are HD and can be accessed any time during the event, as often as you'd like.
This is a great opportunity to learn from the industry's masters and gain insight into their technique, thought process and workflow. Get a massive dose of inspiration, motivation and education while sharing the experience with peers from around the world.
