About the Event
In this "trial format" event, we are looking for local Tech Professionals to bring their kids (11-16 years old) to listen to local VFX firm, Dark Cosmos, discuss how cool the world of tech really is with their Visual Effects work, what skills and career paths there are in to the Creative Tech sector, and what supporting tech jobs there are around the edges of this brilliant industry. We are looking to inspire a new generation of technology professionals to set their sights on the local Technology scene, and have the opportunity to ask any questions on how they get into this sort of career.
Agenda of the talk will be:
- Introduction to Dark Cosmos
- Showcase some of their work
- How they actually do it; tools and techniques?
- What makes it interesting / problems they need to solve (how do you make realistic fire using CGI?)
- What sort of skills and qualifications you would need to get into the Creative Arts / Tech field and what pathways there are>
- Other jobs in tech, "behind the scenes", that still are great fun to be part of
Please book as many tickets as you need for yourself and any children you are bringing so we can gauge numbers correctly. We will need a parent, carer or guardian to accompany all child attendees at all time.
