Join us December 3rd for an inside look into the world of Forza Motorsports. If you're a gamer who feels the need for simulated speed or a games artist who is curious about how to create compelling visual frames from cars going 200mph, you won't want to miss this livestream event. Matt Collins, who has served as CG Supervisor for all Forza Motorsport series releases, will give viewers an overview on the franchise's history as well as the core art principles to keep in mind when creating a 60 frames per second title. From balancing overall composition, eyeflow, and lighting to incorporating environmental storytelling in order to give players a sense of place, history, gameplay moments and challenges, you'll learn what it takes to be in the driver's seat for one of the most successful video game franchises.

Our Gnomon Representative Adam Hartel will join Matt as they discuss the key takeaways that Turn 10 Studios has learned over the years and what advancements they'll be bringing to future releases. This livestream-only event will also feature a 30-minute Q&A session with Matt at the end of the presentation. Watch the livestream on the Gnomon Twitch Channel, YouTube Channel, and Facebook Live.

Gnomon's full-time programs and 10-week individual courses are designed to develop well-rounded artists that are skilled in the diverse disciplines within 3D production. For those outside of the US, virtual classroom-style online courses are also available.
