Allan McKay launches new ‘Artist Insight’ website

Allan McKay interviews Blur Studio’s Kris Kaufman for his new Artist Insight series of videos.

3ds Max VFX guru Allan McKay has launched a new website, Artist Insight, featuring video interviews with other leading figures from the worlds of games and visual effects.

The videos, which are between 60 and 90 minutes long, show informal conversations – often over a drink or two – with the likes of Blur Studio lead lighter Kris Kaufman and Pixomondo lead FX TD Benjamin Liu.

They’re locked-off shots, so don’t expect visual fireworks; but they’re interesting insights into the interviewee’s career and working methods, and play nicely in the background while you’re working on other things.

McKay says that he intends to update the site “once or twice a month in the long run, but I plan to do round tables with teams of people in various combinations, which will be a lot of fun!”
