Autodesk selects Armstrong White imagry

Armstrong White has a really good relationship with Autodesk, the biggest CG software maker of for the Entertainment, Gaming and Design industries. They make 3Ds Max and Maya which is the backbone of our opperation. They have selected one of our pieces along with 7 others from the Film, Gaming, and Design industries to represent some of the best work made with thier software this year.

The above image was created by Joseph Brancik (CGI car), Dean Armstrong (retouching) and John Roe (background photo) and will be featured as a HUGE banner at the San Diego International Airport for this years SIGGRAPH, for the whole month of August. SIGGRAPH is the big industry conference for the CGI industries listed above. People from ILM, Pixar, Blue Sky, Apple, Intel, and many others go to this conference to show the latest work, software, and thinking.

This will be a big year for Armstrong White at SIGGRAPH as not only do we get a huge congratulatory banner, but Autodesk will also feature a Video Profile they created of us at the conference and my buddy and co-worker, Damian Fulmer, is teaching a Masters Class for Autodesk as well. Each year we get more and more recognition by the industry which is a great thing to see happening.

Stay tuned for the video profile which I will post on this blog as soon as I get my hands on the final version. Myself and a few other AW folks were interviewed for it.
