The  NY Houdini Usergroup is now set.

               For the last two to 3 weeks I along with Ben Mears and Christopher  Hebert of Sidefx software  got together to bring together the NY Houdini usergroup. Which sets to have our first meeting on Dec. 15th at the School Of Visual Arts in NYC.   

         The first presenters are both SVA Alumni and from Blue Sky Studios creators of Bunny , Robots and the Ice age franchise as well as Peanuts movie..  Our First presenter is Alex Frenklakh who is an FX TD currently working at Blue Sky using Houdini for his creations on various films at the company…  Our second presenter is another alumni from SVA Kevin Edzenga who is a Crowds TD at Blue Sky also using Houdini for his creations and also worked on various films at the studio..   So it will an alumni fest of artistry using Houdini as the tool of choice …  I have been tring to get this started over 10 years ago and it never saw the light of day till now….   I’m proud to have gotten the help of these guys along with John McIntosh Chair of the Computer Art , Computer Animation and Visual Effects Dept at the School of Visual Arts to be the venue …

      More meetings are being planned and hopefully this group will have a monthly meeting with great presentations from Fellow Houdini artists showing off their creations and    show they used Houdini to solve their production problems …  I wanted to make a statement with this one start it off with a bang …   Hopefully continue to bring more artists and students , friends and future users together to create a bigger market for this amazing tool..  Can’t wait …
