Careers The Rookies - Creature Legends Event by Alwyn Hunt a year ago 4 min read After the success of the VFX Creature’s Drink, we are really proud to team up with Gaël Kerchenbaum to bring you an exclusive new event! Creature Legends is an event meant to bring character and creature artists closer together and share experiences.Gaël has been doing an amazing job of bringing people together to speak about one of our favorite topics, creatures and characters, and how we create them, among many others industries such as VFX, Games, and Collectibles.Creature Legends will be a great way for you to meet our community and many amazing talents from across the industry. The Rookies - Creature Legends event has two parts:- Part one: Creature StoriesThe Event will start off with one or several talks and Masterclasses given by artists or companies. During which they will share their knowledge and experiences. In order to make their presentations more accessible, they will be live-streamed on our Twitch channel. It is very important for us to promote accessibility between newcomers and already established artists. - Part two: Creature DrinksThis is the heart of the event. Attendees will be able to share tips and techniques with others over a drink and expand their network. We are all here to speak about a common passion, Creatures and Characters.Depending on the location and availability, we might be unable to organize both parts consecutively, so keep an eye on our upcoming programs! Who will be able to join?Our event is based on sharing, which means you’d be more than welcome to join us.

However, the number of seats for the first part -Creature Stories- will be limited; so make sure to reserve yours once registrations have opened.We are still in the early days of The Rookies - Creature Legends. Depending on our growth we may have to demand entry fees in the future. If so, we plan on making sure it will remain affordable for both professionals and students alike.
