Check Out CGMA’s Mastering Destruction in Houdini with Keith Kamholz

Mastering Destruction in Houdini with Keith Kamholz

2019 Spring registration is open at CGMA! They’re here to help artists connect with industry professionals and offer arts education that allows you to improve your portfolio without spending hundreds of thousands of dollars. They are a company founded by industry professionals that try to make sure the curriculum they offer consists of the most relevant information possible so artists can enter the industry equipped with the skills they need. This is all a part of their Content Management Initiative (CMI) to bring students lessons that are up to date and align with industry standards.


Unleash your inner FX monster, and let’s smash some buildings! In this destruction course, students will learn a comprehensive set of skills to develop beautiful work with a high degree of artistic control. This will include fracturing, RBD simulation, dust, debris, and adding details from real-world reference material. However, students will learn more than just the technical setups alone – they’ll also learn about production pipeline considerations, and innovative unique workflows for art-directing damage (both with & without simulation). By the end of the class, students will have a feature-film-quality destruction shot for their demo reel!
