This podcast is a fountain of information. Sure it is not unbiased, chaosgroup is the company behind the podcast. But it is about the people and how they ended up doing what they are doing now, which is fascinating all the time.
There are episodes I would consider a must-listen if you are in the vfx industry.
Keep up the fantastic work Chris.
This is an absolute must-hear for anyone even remotely interested in computer graphics. It’s a Monday ritual for me.
Chris’s versatile background allows him to shift the focus effortlessly between FX, Archviz, geeky tech and art.
Unfortunately, too many podcasts about the industry find it hard to hit the right tone. Very often, conversations turn into content-free, mutual back-slapping. Not here. Chris doesn’t beat around the bush, he asks the tough questions and always makes sure to deliver value for us busy listeners.
