Create captivating 3D artwork with Spark AR Studio
November 19, 2021 • 9:00AM - 12:00PM PST
New to the world of 3D? Don't be intimidated! In this workshop, we will dive into the fundamentals of 3D modeling. Our goal is to create some fun animations and artwork using the skills we learn on the way.
This free workshop will start with a 30-minute panel discussion between Facebook employees Craig Cook (Engineering Director, Spark AR), Jaleh Afshar (Product Design Manager), Mate Steinforth (Product Design Prototyper) and Jennifer Fong (Head of Developer Ecosystem). They will discuss the importance of AR as a technology, how each of them got started on their journeys in AR, and the possibilities with Spark AR. You will have a chance to ask your questions too!
You’ll then get the chance to learn to design, model, and render your own characters from scratch! Both beginners and experts will enjoy exploring the field of 3D modeling in Spark AR Studio. We will start out with basic 3D concepts and animation and learn what goes into creating a 3D project. You'll leave with a fully-fledged 3D animation ready for Spark AR.
During this 3D modeling workshop, Kym Fiala brings his expert experience in motion graphics, augmented reality, and digital activations to the classroom.
After seeing Finding Nemo in his second year of college, he fell in love with 3D and has never looked back. It's Kym's mission to change the world 1 Pixel at a time, and we can't think of a better way to accomplish that goal than to host this interactive workshop. Kym’s work speaks volumes and engages millions with clients like Nike, Fifa, Coke, Ford, and too many more to list!
