Autodesk will be hosting a series of afternoons with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe’s (SCEE) Cambridge Studio. Environment team lead Tom Jones will give an exclusive insight into the making of the hit game Heavenly Sword at events taking place during 7-18 July in Moscow, London, Stockholm, Frankfurt and Warsaw.
Tom has worked at SCEE's Cambridge Studio for the past six years with recent credits including 24: The Game (PS2), MediEvil (PSP), Formula One: Championship Edition (PS3) and Wipeout Pulse (PSP). He’s currently working on Killzone 2 (PS3) as Cambridge environment team lead. He graduated from Bournemouth University with a degree in Computer Animation and Visualisation, although he has a background in traditional art forms, particularly drawing and oil painting.
Autodesk will be hosting VIP master classes in Autodesk 3ds Max and Autodesk Maya 3D modelling and animation software exclusively for Autodesk Subscription customers on the morning of each event featuring experts such as 3ds Max Master Grayson Chalmers from Sony On-Line Entertainment.
An Afternoon With SCEE is open to all and as well as featuring Tom Jones’ Heavenly Sword presentation, there will be demos of Autodesk 3ds Max and Autodesk Maya software, Autodesk Mudbox 3D sculpting software, Autodesk MotionBuilder character animation software, and Autodesk HumanIK and Autodesk Kynapse middleware.
The London event takes place on Friday 11 July at Le Méridien Piccadilly hotel, with the masterclass running from 10am to 12pm and the main even from 1.30pm to 6.00pm.
