If you are working in the animation or game industry (or studying to become one), you may have experienced (or will) events where highly skilled professionals assistants go to explain their work. Or maybe you just like to know about this fascinating work and the people who make it.
This June, a week ago, in Barcelona (Spain) was celebrated the b’Ars VFX 2017, an event with many distinguished professionals that talk of a lot of interesting stuff. I’m an animation student, and I love these events, so I went (sadly, I could make it only for one day, Friday 9), and now I’ll tell you what I saw.
Photos and video recording were prohibited, so I’m sorry but I can’t give you more than what the event officially posts online.
So let’s go in chronological order through all the conferences:
After an eternity announced, we get to see Marvel’s new series “Clack and Dagger” with namesake heroes.
They aren’t very popular, but maybe you can recall them from Civil War (the comic), where Cloak performed the legendary teleportation of the rebels that allowed one of the greatest and more important fights on the media.
This series will be the third original series after Agent Carter and Agents of SHIELD, and although the second is getting better, my only hope is for this to raise the bar a bit, and not commit the same mistakes, both in special effects and in the script.
Only time will tell, as this series won’t see the light until 2018, where we will see how this duo of light and darkness make out.
