Dave Fothergill wanted to try out the new Miarmy extension for Maya, so he put together a test set-up: what would happen when a small army of people run after a rotating aluminum bar?  The simple little experiment turned out to be so compelling to watch that he uploaded it online and the video soon became a Vimeo Staff Pick Of The Day.  Proving once again, it’s the small things in life that make it fun.  If this strikes your fancy then you absolutely need to check out the brand new homemade trailer from Kevin Margo.  Kevin works as a visual effects supervisor for his day job, but on his down time he invented a brilliant new software technique which shaves off a huge amount of work involved in the CGI process.  The ingenious software bypasses the painstaking and time-consuming process known as “ray tracing” which adds countless hours of VFX labor time to a film’s post-production schedule, and some are saying Kevin’s software is going to revolutionize low-budge independent and big-budget studio filmmaking for years to come.  You can lear much more by CLICKING HERE, and by watching Kevin’s homemade trailer for CONSTRUCT below.
