Get an all-access pass into the workflow of Gnomon founder and director Alex Alvarez with Gnomon Workshop’s newest DVD release – The Making of ‘Dirge’.

“In this extensive eight-hour DVD, Alex Alvarez delves into the the creation of ‘Dirge’, his hellish new animated personal project. Created as a high-resolution two-minute animated loop at 2560×1600 for viewing on a 30″ framed display, ‘Dirge’ was created using Maya, ZBrush, Photoshop, After Effects and Mental Ray. The entire workflow will be explored, including character and environment design, modeling, sculpting, texturing, shaders, dynamic effects, rigging, animation, lighting, volumetric effects, and compositing… Through it all, Alex discusses not only the technical aspects of this project, of which there were many, but just as important, the artistic decisions and discoveries made during The Making of ‘Dirge'”
