  1. Episodes Explore NFT Boom with Focus on Benefits to Artists; Latest Episode Premieres Today with NYU Professor/Cryptology Expert, David Yermack LOS ANGELES – April 26, 2021 – Today, Chaos’ CG Garage podcast announces the launch of a series focused on NFTs (nonfungible tokens). With NFTs sweeping through the art world, turning digital artists into sudden millionaires, the opportunities can seem limitless. But NFTs also come with a bunch of questions, especially for artists unfamiliar with cryptocurrency. The series seeks to explain what they are, why they matter and how to get started, so artists can make more informed decisions about their careers. “CG Garage has always been about shedding a light on what matters to CG artists, whether that’s how they came up, interesting projects or just making sense of emerging opportunities,” said Christopher Nichols, CG Garage host and director of Chaos Labs. “The DeFi world is fascinating, but it also needs a guided introduction for most people. In these episodes, we’re talking to artists and experts in the know, who can easily illuminate the many facets of NFTs, from basic ideas like ‘what is Ethereum?’ to their carbon footprint. If you’re curious, this is where to start.” For the uninitiated, NFTs are digital tokens that can be used to track the ownership of a digital asset. Because they live on a blockchain (or decentralized ledger), these digital tokens can be easily validated as totally unique, giving the owner access to an evolving investment or bragging rights. While online superstars like Grimes and Beeple have already sold NFTs for millions, they also offer a new way for CG artists to sell and profit off their art, moving them from social media likes to recurring royalties without any help from the traditional gallery system. Two episodes are available now, including today’s discussion with the head of NYU’s finance department, David Yermack. Several more will be released in the coming weeks. The current series will include: ● Sally Slade, Magnopus’ lead AR/VR developer, explains what she had to do to get her digital drawing onto the NFT market, using a $100 budget as a constraint. ● David Yermack, NYU Stern cryptocurrency professor, breaks down the key concepts behind NFTs in the most accessible way possible, getting into issues of ownership, the value of digital copies and the role digital artists can play in the NFT market. ● Alex Coulombe & Samuel Arsenault-Brassard will join the podcast on May 10 to talk about how they created an art exhibit using virtual architecture and NFTs. ● David Levy, Avatar 2 concept artist, will stop by on May 24 to explain how the changing profit model and new financial opportunities are impacting the artist community. The series is designed to be listened to in order to build up the listener’s knowledge base, moving from initial ideas to a more versed, actionable understanding as things progress. CG Garage is available to download and stream (for free) on the Chaos Group website, Apple Podcast, Spotify and Gaana.

  2. Hi guys! We have just started the third season of the CG Talks podcast. The first two episodes were mostly news, so I thought I would post the third one, ‘Fringes of CG’. In the far reaches of the CG animation world, beyond the reach of mainstream pop culture, dwells some pretty incredible and sometimes batshit crazy content. Join us as we descend into the surreal landscapes of out-of-the-box creators, and reexamine our perception of Art and Creativity! Before listening I encourage you to check the resource links – there is a lot of weird stuff to watch. CG talks S03E03: Fringes of CG We have just finished recording the next episode with Vaughan Ling as a guest. Tutor, modeler, concept artist and creator of Heavypaint painting application. You can get more info about him from his Youtube channel - HEAVYPOLY So stay tuned for the next episode! ?

Style is the elusive x-factor that every artist hopes to acquire. It trumps technical skill (to an extent) and can skyrocket one into a celebrity! But developing a style isn't straightforward, and can be as elusive as that dream freelance gig you've been hoping for. In this episode, we try to break down what style is and how to attain it naturally. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zrbp62XlEhw CG talks - ep. 4: Dealing with the 3d Learning Curve While 3d promises an almost boundless ability to create absolutely anything, we often overlook how time-consuming and difficult it can be to create even simpler things sometimes. Marco DJ and Andrew discuss their experiences learning 3d, what learning 3d is like today and what to keep in mind as you continue on your journey to mastering this amazing and complex medium. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pSUqJ2GVA9o The fifth episode is cooking and we talk there about how to take advantage of the tough times we have now, how to rediscover your passion which originally drove you to CG, and is there a conspiracy of left-handed people? :)
