Join us on Saturday, October 15th, at 12 pm (PDT) for an afternoon with 3D artists Pedro Conti and Victor Hugo. Both born and raised in Brazil, the talented pair have worked in freelance roles for international clients, at boutique studios, and most recently at Walt Disney Animation Studios. Pedro and Victor were part of the team of passionate artists at TechnoImage in Brazil before moving to Los Angeles in January 2016 to work on Disney’s latest animated adventure, Moana, which hits theaters on November 23. Their talks will offer an insight into their career highlights and curveballs, discussing the differences between working in small and large studios, as freelancers, and even running a company. They will also share some of the key examples from their incredible portfolios, giving a look at their workflow and revealing the tools and techniques that helped them craft impressive bodies of work.

Pedro Conti3D Artist
Born and raised in São Paulo, Pedro has held various
roles throughout his nine-year career, including positions at several Brazilian
studios. He was also a partner at TechnoImage
and has worked as a freelancer with several big clients on feature films in
recent years. He’s had the opportunity to
co-direct many impressive projects, and most recently completed a role at Walt
Disney Animation Studios on Moana. He is currently working as a freelance 3D
Artist and Supervisor, and is also an international speaker at various events
around the world.
Victor Hugo3D Artist
Victor Hugo first tried 3ds Max when he was 13 — and hated it. Rather than planning an art
career, his plan was to become a history teacher. At 19, he needed money to pay
for college, so he took a job at an arch viz studio in Brazil. He learned how
to model on-the-fly, and eventually started to enjoy what he was doing. Eleven
years later — and having just wrapped on Moana at Walt Disney Animation Studios
— he’s an award-winning artist with one of the 3D community’s most recognizable
portfolios of stylized 3D illustrations.
