bluegfx expo - 6th November 2014

Blue GFX - in London 6th November
Blue GFX Expo is taking place in London on 6th November 2014. Last year's event was superb - in attendance 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 hair simulation tools. There were so many talks on cutting edge CG tools that it was hard to choose which ones to attend. For all our students, 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.

What is bluegfx expo?
The bluegfx expo is an industry day which provides Media and Entertainment professionals an opportunity to hear about the latest developments in technology.

Blue GFX are in the process of lining up talks from companies of all shapes and sizes.

Get hands on with the latest technology
The expo hall gives you the perfect opportunity to discuss the latest software and hardware technology from your favourite manufacturers, and discover new innovations from developers you may not have heard from before. More details of speakers and sponsors to follow.

The Coin Street Centre is 5 min walk from Waterloo train and tube station and Southwark tube station, 15 min walk from Charring Cross, and a few tube stations away from King’s Cross St Pancras. When you get to Stamford Street, look for the yellow building.
