Half Rez 8!


Every year the Half Rez event takes place in Chicago and is put on by some of the most talented folks in the city. After 8 amazing years with substantial growth, Half Res continues to be the leading 3d and motion event in the Midwest. Hundreds of artists, animators, producers— students and professionals gather to celebrate all things of motion design and VFX.

As usual, there was an awesome line-up of presenters, showing off everything from the T-Rex Sue exhibit at the Field Museum to the ridiculous creations of Smearballs.

Of course, there were plenty of world-class sponsors like Maxon, Red Giant, Redshift (that’s a lot of red), Video Copilot and Tool Farm as well as prolific studios like Flavor, Sarofsky, Next/Now, Protokulture, Mode Project, Loose Keys, and Meptic.

This year, Chimirus found itself among these stars, supporting Half Rez as a sponsor and raffling off a spot in our upcoming Beyond Photoshop Master Workshop on November 16th & 17th 2019.

Half Rez 8 did not disappoint— we had a great time! We caught up with our colleagues, met some new friends and connected with new communities outside of our city. We believe that building and fostering these relationships are key for learning and collaborating on new endeavors. Thanks again to Half Rez and the wonderful team that makes it all come together!
