  • CGI in NYC

    Hi,

    New to this board. It's great! This is for the NYC retouchers.

    What would be a good NYC CGI- retouching house? I'm on the CGI side and am finding it hard to work out who's who in NY.

    Thanks

    Someone I used to work with went to a workshop here:

    Can't say what it would be like to work with them, though. But it could be worth checking out.

                He said retouching and CGI. I was answering the retouching part. What is CGI- some kind of disease? I have CRS- Can't Remember S---.

                  Computer Generated Imagery

                  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer-generated_imagery

                  Not exactly Scott Kelby's market. I hope. If I ever had to sit through a semester of his bad jokes from the front of the classroom, my head would explode.

                    I used to have a "I suffer from CRS" bumper sticker...haha.

                    CGI stands for Computer Generated Imagery. In short, it means not real and it's usually made in 3D. CGI is a term widely use by celebrities, television personnel, and even some movie directors to describe special effects in films that they really don't know what they're talking about. In recent years, it has become the standard term in the retouching world to describe retouching that deals with photographic imagery and 3D elements. In the 3D world, it's just CG. Some 3D artists actually get offended by the term CGI. Let's just say that if you were in an interview with Pixar and you're trying to impress your interviewers with your knowledge in the 3D industry by CGI this and CGI that, it's gonna cost you the job.

                    Here's what CG at its best.

                      Retouching jobs in NYC?
                      by vita83
                      Hi i was wondering if anyone could help me.
                      I have just started looking into fulltime retouching jobs and studios in NY and wanted to get a general idea as to how much work there is out there currently.

                      It would mean me relocating from London, so i would also like to know what...

                      NYC retouching summer job?
                      by Kitkuare
                      I'm looking to work in NYC for the summer and I was wondering if retouching houses ever hire people on for the summer? I'm in college right now studying photography but eventually I want to do high-end retouching.

                      Any thoughts or advice on the subject would be greatly appreciated....
