The Winners Take It All. CGEvent-2012.

During the last weekend the lobby and six conference halls of the Holiday Inn Sokolniki were overcrowded with more than 2000 CGI professionals from all over the ex-USSR territory.

The Tenth CG Event Moscow was the largest professional conference in Russia, with almost 90 lectures and seminars in 2 days and 7 concurrent sections.

One of the traditional show-stoppers was EventReel-2012, the CGI demo reel contest. The contest was held in three nominations: “VFX”, “Character Animation” and “Motion Design”. Unlike the previous years, this time the contest was judged by the “popular vote” of the CGI community: winners were determined by more than 200 online voters.

Our congratulations to the First prize winners and, especially, to the Second prize winners who were awarded with Cerebro 6-month subscription certificates:

  • “VFX” – Terminal FX company (Kyiv, Ukraine),
  • “Character Animation” – Vipline company (Minsk, Belarus),
  • “Motion Design” – Trehmer company (Moscow, Russia).

Another thing worth mentioning is that Konstantin Kharitonov, CineSoft CEO, took the floor with a presentation of the latest Cerebro release feature set.
