I've been a Podcasts fan for years now, and having my own Podcast has been on the to do list for a while now. Also I really want to buckle down and focus on learning how to create visual effect this year. So I combined the two and I have a Podcast now! The VFX Apprentice Podcast!
The VFX Apprentice Podcast tracks Andrew Buttigieg’s progress as he learns about VFX tools and techniques. Join him as he shares what he has learnt, reviews online courses and tutorials, and interviews other artists.
The main goals of the podcast is to share my progress and what I’ve learnt about VFX tools and techniques. I will be reviewing and sharing the details and results of the various online courses and tutorials that I complete. The primary tool I will be focusing on learning is SideFX’s Houdini. The breadth of the tools capabilities is wide, and the output capable is simply amazing. Most movies rely on it to deliver the amazing VFX shots needed in today’s blockbusters.
The other main goal of the podcast is to meet and interview other artists. We all can learn a lot from each others individual paths and journeys, what problems they faced, and how they overcame them. Plus it will allow me to talk CG & VFX with others. Most of my friends are computer geeks, not CG & VFX geeks.
Plus another benefit of the podcast is to keep myself motivated and on track. There is no study schedule per say, but I want to remain consistent. I’ve stopped and started too many times in the past as life got busy or something else came up and distracted me. No study, no podcast!
