We're back and we're now in the same place.
London Southbank University have kindly offered to host our meetup again. They were such a good host last time Russ and I are pleased to be able to have LUUG there again.
'Your first 45 minutes with Unity'
We try to accomodate users with a wide range of experience with Unity, so whilst some of the content Carlos will be showing later will be inspiring, it might go over the top of the heads of some of the new Unity users.
Russ Morris will be taking you through 'your first 45 minutes with Unity' to make sure that the newer Unity users can get up to speed as quickly as possible.
Russ has been teaching Unity3D as part of the Game Cultures course at London South Bank University, and is currently working as a Unity developer and designer at a soon to be announced startup studio.
helloflower is an intuitive 3D editor for iPhone and iPad, that allows users to design beautiful flowers from a petal outline. Created by HelloEnjoy and built with Unity, helloflower was runner-up in Best Non-Game category at the Unity Awards 2010.
Carlos will walk the audience through the production of the project, sharing his thoughts about the work and revealing behind the scenes assets and techniques used to create this app.
Carlos Ulloa is the founder of HelloEnjoy, an interactive studio specialised in high-end real-time 3D for the Web and mobile.
Carlos has been passionately involved with interactive entertainment since the early 90s, developing Playstation & PC titles at Psygnosis and Sony Computer Entertainment Europe. In 1999 he moved into online advertising, employed by leading agencies in Madrid, Barcelona and London, and his work evolved into the fields of graphic and typographic effects, motion design, interactivity and mainly 3D. In 2006 he created Papervision3D, the Open Source 3D engine for Flash.
At HelloEnjoy he continues to explore ways to make 3D design accessible to broader audiences. A good example of this is his latest piece, helloflower, an intuitive 3D flower creator for the iPad. The studio also partners with advertising agencies around the world to create engaging experiences and games for their clients.
Carlos has been a regular contributor and speaker at international conferences such as TEDGlobal, Creativity and Technology, Casual Connect, FITC, Flash on the Beach and Adobe MAX.
He currently lives and works in Brighton, UK.
