“Making” eats into time for research. Research eats into time to make.
I’m trying to find what is out there topic wise in podcast form. I hope to maximize time learning all this wizardry as I work, and I figure I’m not alone in that. Are there any VFX/TechArt Game Dev Podcasts? Any such podcasts that would help towards that effect of understanding?
In my searches, I’ve found there are a number of Static VFX ( i.e. Movie VFX) based podcasts, such as The Allan McKay podcast, and of my querys was only able to find one podcast with any strictly Realtime VFX basis called Visual Disruptors…
Visual Disruptors is a new podcast from Epic Games and Unreal Engine. Hosted by Mike Seymour – lecturer, researcher and co-founder of fxguide – we unwrap one of the most exciting developments in media and entertainment for decades: virtual production. Each episode, Mike will speak with some of the brightest minds in the business, exploring how and why virtual production will change the industry forever. If you’re interested in hearing more about virtual production and what it can do for your business, check out http://uevirtualproduction.com.
…yet even THAT is ultimately movie based. (Fascinating stuff through. )
I also found Podcasts for Game Audio & Game Design (there are a bunch for game design) but nothing for VFX/Tech strictly speaking. Internally (site wise), I only found three posts referencing podcasts, and of the two examples given from those posts, we have one which is of Art Experience and one with a Design based outlook.
While the focus of this post is to collect any well made podcast with topics useful in VFX & Tech Art Game Development, I don’t want to discourage a wider swath of topics out there. After all, our craft can pull from so many other fields, (like Daoist Philosophy) that I simply don’t want to discourage a recommendation.
So! If any one is aware or can recommend a podcast (that has helped you be sharper at your style of craft), then please post links to them here!
