EVERY $1000 WE COLLECT IN THIS CAMPAIGN WILL FREE FOR EVERYONE IN THE WORLD 1 HOUR OF HD VIDEO TRAINING FROM OUR FX POWER USER PROGRAM.
I HAVE ADDED PERKS FROM MY PHOTOGRAPHY CAMPAIGN TO THIS ONE TO REWARD ANYONE WHO WANTS TO CONTRIBUTE BUT ITS NOT INTERESTED IN TAKING MY FX PROTOTYPING COURSE OR AVATAR TECH TALK. SEE THE LIST OF PERKS AND IMAGES AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE FOR SAMPLES.
THANKS TO ALL YOUR SUPPORT SO FAR WE HAVE RELEASED 13 HOURS OF VIDEO TRAINING.
If we are successful all of our contributions will give that kid in India or China, South America, Europe or Africa who sits and watches is awe how Iron Man and The Avengers save the world, or how Harry Potter defeats evil with so many cool tricks and spells, an opportunity to learn how this impressive imagery is done, and hopefully become the next generation of VFX Artists that with an open mind and warm heart will take our troubled and sometimes unfair industry into the place it deserves.
UPDATE #1: Thanks to your support the first round of free videos is online and ready to be watched. Enjoy http://www.vfxlearning.com/videos
I'll keep the story short and sweet. Since my departure from ILM Singapore after this incident: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/lucasfilm...
I had my first born child, came back to my home country of Venezuela, got divorced and for the last 2 years I have struggled with a heavy depression after not being able to see my son who moved with his mother to Russia. Because of this I have neglected some of my students and I regret it deeply. For that I apologise and I hope to make it up to all of you in some way sooner or later.
I know is no excuse but going through such a painful experience has been extremely hard for me and perhaps I didn't deal with the situation in the best possible way.
To make matter worse as many others, my website fell victim of hacker attacks and piracy which impacted considerably all sales to the point of losing my car and I basically had to start from scratch...
VFX Learning is my main source of income and if I plan to release all my courses free to the world I will need a hand securing some funds so I can work on a new project and make a living.
As a thank you to all my students over the 5 years VFX Learning has been around, I will give you guys my upcoming Avatar Tech Talk free of charge. It will be an interactive session so I will get a chance to talk and apologise to all of you live.
As a perk to all the contributors I will offer my last course at VFX Learning, its called FX Prototyping Program and it will basically be every single trick and bit of knowledge I have in FX into one last 10 week course. You can learn more about it here www.vfxlearning.com/prototyping
With every student that enrols I will unlock to everyone in the world one (1) of the FX Power User Program videos, the name of the contributor with a link to his/her website will appear above each video as an official sponsor.
I trust this will be of great help to thousands of students all over the planet and I hope you feel the same way. Thank you in advance.
