Calling All Animators - BlueGFX is Coming to London on 19th November!

Blue GFX Expo
Mark your calendars; Blue GFX Expo is taking place in London on 19th November 2015. Previous year's events have been superb - in attendance in 2013 were the founders of Blue Zoo, the UK's biggest TV animation company, the guys from Framestore who did the animation for the Skyfall title sequence, and representatives from Autodesk showing the latest simulation tools.

There are so many talks on cutting edge CG tools that can be hard to choose which ones to attend.  For all our students at Escape, this is a not-to-be-missed chance to catch up with the latest technology and meet in person the people who run the UK's top animation and visual effects houses.  And best of all, it's completely free.

What's BlueGFX all about?
The BlueGFX Expo is a superb opportunity for students and professionals working in games development, film, TV and design visualisation to chat with each other and learn about the latest developments in technology and workflow systems. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet industry vendors and try out the latest products.  Last year over 300 visitors enjoyed a day of presentations from industry leaders and product demonstrations from Autodesk, Nexenta, Chaos Group and Adobe.

How can you apply?
BlueGFX is not yet taking applications, but save the date, and keep an eye on their website so you can register early. You can also call for information on 01483 410370.

When is it taking place?
The BlueGFX sixth annual expo is on Thursday November 19th.

Where is is happening?
At the Coin Street Centre on London's South Bank.  The address is 108 Stamford St, London, South Bank SE1 9NH
