Video Podcast #05
Join ATMO as we hang out with David Luong, a veteran senior environment artist and matte painter. We’ll learn about how he got started in the industry and take a look at some of his incredible work from his time at Blizzard, which you can find on our website (www.atmovfx.com). David will share some of the challenges he’s faced throughout his career, as well as his strategies for success.
We’re having a chat with the former Blizzard Senior Cinematic Artist, now Senior Artist at “Imagendary Studios” about his creative path, his role in making famous Blizzard cinematics, behind the scenes details of that process, his future plans and what he can say to people who pursue their dreams.
In this episode, we discuss: How he finds motivation to work on his own personal work away from Blizzard. His newest potential distraction from his personal work: Breath of the Wild. How and why he and his husband started their art gallery, Photonic Playground. The self-doubt that he experienced before putting up his own artwork in the gallery for the first show…and more!
