DAY 1

  • Creative Lighting Philosophy
    Creative Lighting is a software-agnostic philosophy whose principles can be applied in all scenarios: day, night, inside and outside, just like in film and painting. Nikos shares how the greats of cinematography have inspired the Creative Lighting concept, and how he brought cinematic lighting techniques into an entirely different world - the virtual world.

  • Introduction to Corona Renderer
    Corona Renderer is one of the most powerful rendering engines in the market. Nikos shares his unique creative workflows and lighting techniques for fast and happy rendering.

DAY 2

  • The Imagemaking Process
    Making commercial imagery is the result, whether we like it or not, of a partnership between Artist and Client (or Designer in the case of the in-house artist). Damian goes deep into how to navigate this relationship to achieve great visuals, in a session blending artistic process and creative direction skills.

  • The Anatomy of an Image
    Analysis of the fundamental building blocks of a strong visual: composition, tone, color, focal hierarchy.

- You cannot purchase only the first or the second day of the workshop.

- Creative Lighting philosophy can be applied to any software:
We strongly believe in the power of the artist and the software is just a tool for us that allows us to create art and tell our stories like a painter has his brushes to paint. The focus of this workshop is Creativity, Lighting, and the Imagemaking process, it's not a technical course but you will also learn unique workflows to improve your production and many tips to render faster, much faster. We chose 3ds Max and Corona Renderer to demonstrate our methods and you can apply everything back in any other software you like.
