TSR 001: SOA Academy Day #5 Special
This session represents the inception point of The SpectRoom. Nearly three years ago I interviewed a host of inspirational people at SOA Academy Day #5 and you’ll hear them here. Starting with Mats Andersen and Trond Greve from MIR, Adam Hotovỳ and Juraj Talcik for Render Legion about Corona Renderer, Peter Guthrie being Peter Guthrie + More, Christiaan Klaassen from DBOX, and Pedro Fernandes from Arqui9.
MIR / Mats Andersen & Trond Greve
Located in Norway, MIR is a big source of inspiration to me in many aspects, not just in their visuals but in the way they go about doing their work. They dedicate one artist per one week per one image, which allows them to remain focused and undistracted, and to deliver a high-quality product on time. In my conversation with them, Trond and Mats describe this process they title “MIR is a Resturant,” as well as their disciplined approach to their art, how they plan to develop their visualizations in the future, and what hopeful potential employees should do, and not do, to gain their attention.
I’ve posted a written interview with MIR back in March 2011 which could be very interesting to read before or after listening to the recorded one years after.
Render Legion – Corona Renderer / Adam Hotovỳ & Juraj Talcik
Corona Renderer is a high-performance photorealistic renderer software program developed in Prague by Render Legion. I talked with Adam Hotovỳ about some of the milestones they were working to meet at the time of SOA Academy Day #5. Juraj Talčík also had plenty of great things to say about why he and Veronika Demovičová prefer to use Corona Renderer over other rendering programs.
At the time of this conversation, Peter Guthrie and Henry Goss were two days into their adventure at The Boundary. The incredible success of their company is a topic that will also feature in a future session of The SpectRoom.
DBOX / Christiaan Klaassen
DBOX is a full-service agency, taking their clients from branding all the way to the publication of a project. I’m talking here with Christiaan Klaassen about CGI, how synchronization happens with the whole team, and the incredibly detailed work they put into each project.
Arqui9 / Pedro Fernandes
Based in the UK, Arqui9’s Pedro Fernandes stresses simplifying your portfolio and specializing in your greatest area of strength. He also has some great tips for artists that are looking into going out on their own that you’ll want to hear. Expect to hear more from Pedro in a future session.
