The UTS Animal Logic Academy is excited to announce that we will be running two new Houdini masterclasses!

  • 1-day’ Introduction to Houdini’
    Designed to provide an overview of Houdini, this masterclass will focus on the basic fundamentals of the package and how users can apply those fundamentals consistently across the entire application.
  • 2-day ‘Houdini Bootcamp’
    Aimed at advanced Houdini practitioners, this 2-day masterclass will focus on the features of Houdini and how users can apply those functions to specific project examples. The objective of this workshop is to have students develop a deeper understanding of the software in order to ‘think Houdini’, empowering users to self-explore and problem-solve.

Both masterclasses will be facilitated by Matt Estela, Senior Houdini Artist at RYOT and a former VFX Lead at the UTS Animal Logic Academy. Matt maintains CGWiki, one of the most popular online resources for learning Houdini, and had several supervisor and lead roles at Animal Logic on films such as Lego Batman, Avengers Age of Ultron, The Great Gatsby, and prior to that many years in commercial production in London.
