Interview with Pierre Chartier – From Photography to Digital Landscapes

Pierre Chartier is a relative newcomer to 3D digital art. Well known and respected in Canada for his work as Director of Photography in the television and entertainment industry, and an award winning director, he moved into the music arena to nurture talent using exotic wind instruments. In 2008, he because familiar with ArtMatic Voyager, and then moved on to Terragen 2.

Pierre brought his photographic and directorial eye into the virtual arena, and not long after starting out, he won a third place finish in the NWDA Roadside contest several years ago. His experience in looking through a lens, and his exposure to the majestic landscapes of Canada and Quebec allow him to create photorealistic landscapes that can easily fool the eye!

Interview : Sylvain Chevallier
 
With Sylvain Chevallier, a Vue artist living and working in France, it is rare to find
the kind of diversity of subject and genre found in Sylvain’s Cornucopia gallery.
Whether he’s rendering a Fastback Mustang, a deep space mission, or an Italian Villa,
it’s obvious he brings a passion for the image regardless of the topic.
Interview : Tarik Keskin
A modern student of the world of architecture and 3D Space, Tarik Keskin studies at
Doğuş University, Istanbul. His futuristic vision of living on Earth and traveling in
space is shared in an outstanding and eye catching style with the help of 3DS Max and
Mental Ray.
Interview : Andy Welder
“There, on sheer endless afternoons, I discovered Sci-Fi and Surrealism…Writers like
Jack Vance, Larry Niven and Isaac Asimov, painters like Salvador Dali, Rene Magritte,
Carel Willink and Escher presented me an alternate reality……those years are the
foundation of my Terragen work”

Interview : Kim Schneider
“I really got my feet wet with Poser. It was sort of the easy entry to the mystical world of 3D. That was back in the days of Poser Pro Pack, long ago. At that point I never would have thought to model myself one day. “

Interview : Mary Williams
“The biggest thing that helped me learn 3D quickly was that, by using Poser, I did -not- have to model every little thing from scratch: I could instead concentrate on learning composition, lighting, and how to create shaders, and after that I picked up how to model my own things at a much more rapid pace than I would have otherwise.”

Interview : Massimo Verona
“A little over a year ago I downloaded Vue PLE ….… Read the rest

In this issue we are privileged to interview Drea Horvath and Michel Rondberg, outstanding artists known for their natural landscape artwork using Vue. One of the questions we asked them was what had surprised them along the way as they grew and developed during their careers. Drea responded with:-

Maybe the biggest surprise is how fast we’ve got involved in commercial and non-commercial productions of bigger studios in a relatively short time. It’s been only a few months since we have officially launched our services, but we have already been working on a cinematic trailer, a historical animation, and soon we start building scenes for a big commercial 3D projection mapping project. This will be the first time Vue is involved in such a production, and we are proud to be the ones to contribute.
