Inspiration: The Amazing Phil Dimitriades

Here is the work of my good bud Phil Dimitriades. Not only is he a great artist but he is also an incredible modeler!!! His sets scream cinematic mastery! I love how he explores lighting to set the tone of each piece. His work makes me want to learn more Maya. Truly beautiful my friend. For more amazing work, check out his blog.

Sam Michlap Lecture at EAA

Just want to let folks know that my bud and artist extraordinaire Sam Michlap will be hosting a workshop titled "Film Design" at the Entertainment Art Academy in Glendale on Sunday, March 4 from 11AM - 2PM. Sam will discuss the mechanics of film design as well as his approaches toward production design.

Sam will discuss his ideas about the use of composition and the power of dramatic lighting and color to help tell the right story and emotion. Demos will include digital painting, markers and traditional paint. Sam is one of the best in the industry, and his workshop will be very informative if not inspirational. Definitely not to be missed! For more information, visit the Entertainment Art Academy or call their office at 888-824-2456.
