Geomedia represents at Incarnate Word
Computer graphics students at the University of the Incarnate Word were treated to an impressive display of animation and visual FX technique by Geomedia artists Thursday evening. Animation director Troy Davis and Incarnate Word student (and Geomedia 3D artist) Jeremy Kenisky were invited by Professor Adam Watkins to demonstrate the practical application of computer graphics in commercial television production.
Jeremy, who came to us as an intern from the CGAUIW program, authored an extensive DVD presentation detailing the Geomedia method on a recent graphics intensive campaign. The spots entailed all manner of 2D/3D animation and visual FX as well as live action production. CGAUIW students were taken on a round-trip journey from script to screen. From concept and pre-production through final film output, Students were able to get a glimpse of the myriad tools, disciplines and techniques involved in the production high-end visual FX.
Geomedia has a long history of supporting local students through participation in mentorship programs, offering serious graphics students a place to gain real life career experience. This is often the hardest part for graduating students… Getting that initial gig and a foothold in the industry. We hope the presentation was enlightening. We’ll look forward to portfolio reviews in the spring!
