Geekeasy Derby: June 2014

Geekeasy is a relaxed gathering of geeky/techy/creative types in Derby, who have an interest in learning and perhaps working together. It's very friendly, and you'll find an interesting mix of people to talk to.

Geek Speak (around 6.30pm): This month we're welcoming Brett Turner back to the stage! You'll remember Brett from last year and he's back to do a talk on: What makes visual effects?

Brett says: "You seen them a lot these days, they're everywhere and I'm talking about big budget, visual effects-driven films. Last year I gave you a explosive insight into the world of visual effects, spanning over the last 3-4 decades. This year I want to take you beyond the effects and introduce you to the practices and companies behind them, and how these effects are made."

After the talk we'll carry on chatting, drinking and chowing down on samosas. Invite a friend, and help spread the geeky word!

All types of geek are welcome: creative, technical, digital, engineering, science, space, web, design, chic geeks and even non-geeks.
