Ideas on Design teams up with Gnomon Live in Australia — Melbourne, Australia — 4-6 MAR 2016
Abbotsford Convent, Melbourne
The Ideas on Design team, renowned for the agIdeas International Design Forum, boasting an impressive legacy of 25 years as one of the most well respected design events in the world, has teamed up with Gnomon School of VFX, Games and Animation in LA, to create an immersive event that will support the content creators of our region. This event has evolved out of a relationship established with Gnomon’s founder Alex Alvarez when he came out to Melbourne to present at agIdeas in 2010. Gnomon Live Australia is being held at the Abbotsford Convent in Melbourne on 4-6 March.
Presenters include the likes of Alex Cancado of Luma Pictures a compositor with 62 film and tv credits to his name. The dizzy heights of Hollywood are a long way from Belo Horizonte, Brazil. But that’s just how far Alex Cancado has come since starting out in the world of motion graphics in his home town doing MTV promos to now leading the compositing work at Luma Pictures on blockbusters like Ant-Man and Avengers: Age of Ultron. The 2D supervisor’s path represents a long road to success, something he wants to share with aspiring artists at Gnomon Live Australia. “I’m not from the US or Hollywood,” says Cancado. “I came from very far away and I had to take a long route and get through a lot of stuff and show a lot of things to get where I did.”
