Maya Taster Day at Bucks

Free Maya Training at Bucks
Hi Everyone!  I'm Dave and I may have met some of you at your interviews here at Bucks.  We are always excited to see what you've been up to on your courses and in your own time.  We've seen some great work!  What we have noticed is that many of those at interview don't have 3D experience.  One of the great things about our new course is the hands on nature of the projects. We'll be doing a lot of 3D work - animating, modelling, texturing, lighting, dynamics - the list goes on!

Alex and I were talking after an interview and we thought what a great idea it would be, if you could come in to Bucks and try a couple of lessons in Maya and see how you get on.  With that in mind, we are setting up a day next month when you can come in and try Maya and see how you like it.  You can experience the software, see how we teach, and see what you think of our facilities.  Interviews can be stressful times and you must feel you are under the spotlight.  Well we're turning the tables!

You can sit back and watch us at work, talk to other applicants, ask questions informally and hopefully have an enjoyable day here!

Let us know what you think! Are any of you interested?


Below is a screen shot of Maya - the dominant 3D software in the UK film industry..


  1. This blog never ceases to surprise! I will certainly need it. Transitioning my workflow from 3DS Max to Maya has not been easy.

  2. Yes...it can be tricky to switch from Max to Maya. The basic principles are the same, but all the buttons are in different places....
