3DAD 015 : Directing the Sci-Fi Series Nobility : Interview with Pioneering Digital Film Maker Neil Johnson

In this session we continue to follow the progress of the sci-fi series project CAS Nobility which is actively pitching for crowd sourced funding on the Kickstarter.com website. Go to Kickstarter.com and just search for nobility and take a look at the videos describing the project, which feature E.J. Del La Pena, the creator of the Nobility project and also the director Neil Johnson. They are offering all kinds of goodies to those who donate to the project. We interview both E.J. and Neil in this session, with an emphasis on Neil’s directing role and past achievements.

Jacob Charles Dietz Interview

Steve Wozniak has bought art from him and he’s been published in the digital arts crème de la crème annuals EXPOSÉ 7 and 8. Who is this international artist that lives in the Arizona desert and publishes exceptional future noir and science fiction imagery?

Meet Charles Jacob Dietz in our key interview for this month’s premium edition of the 3D Art Direct magazine, out on the 29th August.

Attached are a few pieces of his work that we’ve quizzed him about during the interview and here are a few free snippets from the interview text:-

3DAD: What first led you into your interest in being an artist and illustrator? Was it an influence at a young age?
