Over the last several years, Pixologic has been presenting a variety of UGM (User Group Meeting) events, which have proven to be tremendously popular. These were initially in Los Angeles, but there have since been a few in other cities around the world. Unfortunately, they were always limited by the fact that people could only participate in person.
In 2014, we took things a step farther with the ZBrush Summit. This event took all the best elements from the UGM events, added in even more and was livestreamed to the world. Not only could people see the action no matter where they lived, they were also able to actively participate through chat and Twitter. Hugely successful, we have made the ZBrush Summit an annual event. Yet we wanted to keep its momentum going throughout the year...
Today we are please to announce that the landscape will change yet again on February 6, 2017 with the introduction of ZBrushLIVE. Expanding our artist-driven community even farther, ZBrushLIVE will provide a streaming media portal featuring live Twitch broadcasts, the ZBrush Podcast, as well as ZBrush-related news and media.
Regularly scheduled live broadcasts will showcase artists and industry professionals presenting content from a variety of industries including character creation, product design, 3D printing and more. Additionally, the channel will include exclusive "ZPlay" events: Live gaming sessions featuring artists from top game studios who will share assets from the game being played while providing commentary and behind-the-scenes insights. Early episodes will feature artists from the hit titles Fallout 4, DOOM and Final Fantasy XV. As a viewer, you will get the rare opportunity to learn from experts in a way that is informative, fun and interactive.
The ZBrushPodcast will make it possible for you to get to know more about the artists behind your favorite films, games and other 3D artwork. These will be casual conversations covering anything from career trajectories to details about the creative process.
From time to time there will also be event recaps and special announcements from the Pixologic team.
Pixologic is proud to present ZBrushLIVE, connecting artists around the world in one interactive community like never before!
See you on February 6th!
