Featured Artist: Ben Watts, Australia

Long time Gridmarkets supporter and super talented Australian VFX artist Ben Watts has done it again: He collaborated with an international team of artists under the creative direction of world renowned 3D motion design studio Aixsponza to produce a fantastic Nike ad which has blown our socks off! You can find a breakdown of the Nike Vapor Untouchable II spot on the Aixsponza website.

 Apart from his talent as a VFX artist, what we particularly like about Ben is that he doesn’t forget to give back to the VFX community, even when he is busy. He’s been a prolific producer of free Houdini quick tips and tutorials, which can be downloaded from his website.  Some of his tutorials have been viewed over 17,000 times on Vimeo, which is a testament to their usefulness.
 
Ben is part of a growing group of ultra talented and generous VFX professionals who are willing to help their fellow artists climb the steep Houdini learning curve with easy to follow tutorials. We thought we’d help by compiling a list of free and paid Houdini learning resources that will assist you in developing your Houdini skill set.
 
Good luck learning Houdini – Ben and the Gridmarkets team wish you the best in your path to producing stunning new Houdini effects!
