In this course, the student will learn how to evaluate a scene and its structures to develop a fracture workflow. With this, they will learn how to art direct fractures, as well as create some procedural fractures for smaller, less hero assets. Taking this fractured assets, We will throw them into RBD simulations, working on different methods of activation and scale of the different structures. We will add some secondaries debris, along with some dust and smoke, as well as small pebbles and cracking for that extra attention to detail. By the end of the course, the students will have all the knowledge required to destroy any given asset of any type of material and in any way that can be asked in production. They will also have a solid understanding of workflow, fracturing, art direction, simulation and attention to detail.
After 4 years in Paris working on commercials and video games in some of the biggest companies in the world like Ubisoft, I moved to the universe of VFX in London, then Vancouver.
I worked at Dneg for over 6 years, learning from the best, and working on multiple Marvel films, Disney films, blade runner 2049, Terminator Genesis, Pacific Rim 2, Greyhound, and Godzilla king of monsters. I now lead a team of fx artists at Sony Imageworks and do research and development on the more challenging effects that require a fair bit of expertise in Houdini.
My experience as a professional and as a teacher has given me a great understanding of Houdini and how to work simply, fast and efficiently, which I try to pass on to the new generations of artists.
