Eternal Ascent

3D animation skills project Eternal Ascent ultra studio

This project was a personal 3D animation skills project that both Andrew and Gilbert worked on separately. At Ultra we like to work on personal projects that help enhance our skills and try out new methods of working. At times personal skills projects can be challenging as paid projects will always take priority. Often a personal project will get put on the back burner and loses momentum. This is the main reason that both Andy and Gilbert like the 3D challenges set by Pwnisher on Youtube. Clint, the guy behind Pwnisher is a 3D artist and twice a year sets 3D community challenges, these challenges have a deadline and also some great prizes. 

OFFF Barcelona 2023

OFFF Barcelona 2023 london essex outside ultra studio

In March the Studio Ultra team visited OFFF Barcelona 2023 at Disseny Hub. This was the 22nd in person OFFF festival, the first since the pandemic and all of the team were excited to go. For some of the team it was a return visit having attended in previous years and for others it was the first time attending.

We enjoyed talks from David Carson, Kelly Anna, Gavin Strange, Jamhot, Not Real and Ash Thorpe. The festival gives us a great opportunity to network, keep up to date with the latest trends and happenings and come away with inspiration for future projects.
