We are happy to announce that we are hosting our 5th CG Connect Toronto on November 21st! Please join us for an evening of CG industry discussion, tasty food, and drinks including some great local beer. As always this event is free, but space is limited so RVSP today!
In case you are unfamiliar with CG Connect, our goal with these events is to bring the local CG community together in an open, fun environment. We’d like to provide a forum to share ideas, and discuss ways to harness and enhance the growth that we are seeing in the Toronto market today. We think that this is the perfect opportunity to connect directly with the great minds in the Toronto industry and behind the tools we use every day.
Please join us at Autodesk’s event space in the MaRS Discovery district, and help us continue to evolve this event into an ongoing forum for creative exchange that we can all be proud to be a part of.

His career started in the lighting department, but a technical mind and passion for programming enabled the development of vital production tools used in the industry to this day.
