Hard Surface Shading and Texturing Technical Director Raised on a healthy dose of sci-fi and fantasy films, books, and video games, Neil Blevins started off painting and drawing traditionally, and then got into 3d graphics while he still lived in his hometown of Pointe Claire, in Quebec, Canada. After getting a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Design Art at Concordia University, he moved to Los Angeles where he worked at Blur Studio for three years, creating graphics for video game cinematics, commercials, TV, ride and feature films.

NUKE For Trainers Overview We’re incredibly excited to be partnering with The Foundry to be the exclusive educational organization where artists can gain certification to be trainers for NUKE. This is the only way to become an officially certified NUKE trainer. After successful completion of the course, which includes passing both standard and practical exams, members will be listed on the Foundry’s web site as a Certified NUKE Trainer. These members can also nominate a single place of work as a Certified NUKE Training Centre. This curriculum is totally separate from our normal offerings, due to the fact that it is targeted towards those who wish to train other artists in NUKE. The program is not designed to make great shots for your reel, but to provide you with detailed information about the software and how to pass that knowledge on to others. fxphd prof Matt Leonard leads the course, and he has worked very closely with The Foundry to develop a solid and accurate training curriculum.
