Considering a career as technical director, or just want to find out more? Join four of the industry’s top Nuke TDs as they offer exclusive insight into their role—what it took to get there, challenges they faced along the way, and advice on how to overcome these. Hosted by Christy Anzelmo, Foundry’s Director of Product - Compositing & Finishing, this roundtable will dive into what the daily life of a TD and technical artist looks like, and how they optimize their pipelines to help fulfill their creative vision.
We’ll also be hosting a live Q&A at the end to answer your most burning questions, so make sure you stick around.
