The most precious thing about this conference is real communication with real experts, sharing experience, introduction of new design technologies and concepts, making new professional contacts.

In a few words, this event agglomerates:

  • dozens of professionals in different CG areas – from 3d-animators and artists to producers and cinema company owners;
