"Ares is a 3D technical artist working at Factory Fifteen. He joined the Company in 2014, after training to be an Architect in Italy. Ares's technical bias has seen him grow from intern to one of the more senior technical artists in the company, who's specialisms range from pipelines, workflows and scripting, to advanced scattering for animation and real-time game engine visualization. Ares has worked on large architectural films, real-time animations and ambitious music videos along with several advertising projects at Factory Fifteen. ”

TALK: Concept focused VFX - From original IP to advertising at Factory Fifteen

"Ares, a lead technical artist from Factory Fifteen, will give his unique take on what it is like to work at a small, director led animation studio, taking on big projects.

He will showcase several of the biggest film and advertising works the studio has undertaken in the last year with technical breakdowns. Projects such as a new original IP short film, a high profile football advert, a top secret film for a new type of interactive theatre launching worldwide, and an animation for Spitfire Audio titled ‘Phobos’.

Phobos was created in technical partnership with iToo Software. Ares will introduce the project in the latter part of his talk, before Paul Roberts from iToo breaks down how Railclone was utilized to create unique animation techniques, in his talk directly after lunch. "
