Event sponsored by Rising Sun Pictures, The Foundry and
Tyroe will provide young artists with “
insight into the minds of visual effects studios and recruiters.”
Adelaide, South Australia—Aspiring visual effects artists will have a unique opportunity to
have their show reels critiqued by industry experts in an open  “Battle of the Reels” session held as part with next month’s PauseFest digital technology festival in Melbourne. Representatives
from award-winning visual effects studio Rising Sun
Pictures
, visual
effects software developer The Foundry and artists talent agency Tyroe will screen reels submitted by student artists and offer live feedback
on creativity, technique and professional merit.
Student
artists wishing to participate in the event may submit reels of no more than 90
seconds into any of four categories: Compositing, Modeling, Lighting and
Texturing. Student must use at least one product from The
Foundry

in each entry, and can
submit entries via www.tyroe.com/register . A panel of judges will review the submissions
and select a short list of reels for the live, free critique event at
PauseFest. The live critique will be conducted by Rising Sun Pictures’ Marcus
Wells and Kirsty Parkin, Tyroe’s Alwyn Hunt and Andrew McDonald, and The
Foundry’s Mariana Acuna and Nicki Morris. The best reel in each of the
four categories will be awarded a software prize from The Foundry.

“The show reel is one of the most critical aspects to getting
your foot in the visual effects door. For students, it is important to keep the
reel constantly fresh and updated with the latest and greatest.” says
Wells. “VFX recruiters are exposed to thousands of reels each year and
become quickly attuned to what does and does not work. This session will
provide a unique opportunity for up-and-coming vfx artists to get direct
feedback on the presentation of their work. Ultimately we want to engage and
develop local talent so they can get involved in this incredible industry.”
The event is
free both for submitters and attendees (registration required).
