Storytelling details


For SideFX, I wrote about Disney Animation’s use of Houdini for Zootopia – everything from hair to water fountains. The film is great, but the detail is sometimes what makes it so re-watchable.

Houdini in TVCs


You might usually associate Houdini with big budget film visual effects, but it’s been finding a large place in commercials for many years too. Like this Honda spot with vfx by Alt.vfx. I wrote about the work at the Side Effects website.

Houdini. So hot right now


SideFX asked me to find out what visual effects and animation studios were looking for in Houdini artists, and where they can learn more about the software, which I have to say is on something of a hot streak right now.
