Chaos Group Spotlights Students and Independent Films at FMX 2014
Industry Pros and Indie Filmmakers Offer Courses on Lighting, Creature Design, and VFX for Films; Presentations from Students on Award-Winning Shorts

Sofia, Bulgaria – April 10, 2014 – At FMX 2014, Chaos Group will be highlighting how V-Ray supports VFX students and indie filmmakers across the globe. Through a series of presentations by both student teams and professional artists, attendees will see how new improvements to V-Ray 3.0 for 3ds Max and Maya are used on film and animation projects, as well as how students might get a leg up in an increasingly competitive field. 

Students that stop by Chaos Group’s booth will be able to meet with representatives, see V-Ray for Blender in action (every day at 10 a.m.) and try out both versions of V-Ray 3.0 in the FMX marketplace. 

Miguel Ortega  and Tran Ma, the creators of “Green Ruby Pumpkin” are giving multiple talks on how their team approaches creature design on “The Ningyo.” Currently in production, “The Ningyo” focuses on the world of cryptozoology (the search for mythological creatures). This Kickstarter-funded project is also a collaboration with students from Gnomon School of Visual Effects.

Method Studios’ CG Supervisor, Blake Sweeney will demonstrate the techniques behind the invisible effects his team used on the “mirror room” sequence in “Divergent.” Sweeney will also explain what benefits studios draw from V-Ray’s advanced raytracing capabilities, adding a real world perspective on what makes it an effective production solution for students to learn. 

Sweeney, who has worked on “Robocop” and “Iron Man 3,” will return again to provide students with insight into how they can make a great portfolio and successfully approach blockbuster film work during a special lecture session. Students will also be on hand to offer their own case studies/tips as teams from Supinfocom and Filmakademie share the secrets behind their award-winning projects, "The Rise and Fall of Globosome," "Bet She'an" and "Rugbybugs."

Chaos Group CEO Peter Mitev is set to describe how GPU-accelerated V-Ray RT 3.0 rendering is establishing a new paradigm for filmmaking. The upcoming CG-animated short film "CONSTRUCT," rendered entirely on NVIDIA GPUs will be highlighted, as well as a tech preview of V-Ray for MotionBuilder, which was used on the project.
