The 2014 July term at fxphd features a new course taught by Eran Dinur, Advanced Nuke and Digital Environments (nuk309). This 300 level course offers students the opportunity to work through 3 challenging shots – using (in addtition to Nuke) Maya, Arnold, SpeedTree and Hiero. Eran is truly excited to teach this course, his fifth at fxphd.
Eran is excited to join the faculty at the prestigious School of Visual Arts in New York. In his production skills course for the VFX senior class, Eran will focus on compositing, matte painting, and guiding the students in their senior thesis project.
Stiller studios have a beautiful facility in Stockholm, Sweden, with a fantastic motion control rig and a very smart CG pipeline support. They invited Eran to give a four-day compositing workshop. It was a truly memorable visit.
