This is the first part of a 4 part interview hosted by D.J. and Amiel (both passionateBlender users). We start with Louis du Mont’s origin story. How he got interested in art and particularly 3d graphics. Louis is a man of many talents and has always been a curious and passionate artist as well as a technology geek eager to test new stuff. We discuss the art of animation and the new stylized animation trends of movies like ‘Into the Spiderverse’ or ‘Final Fantasy’. We also discuss the business side of running a small studio. Artists often find it hard to tackle both the artistic and business approach of 3d graphics. Louis who teamed up with a friend forming (nomen omen) ‘Weareformation’ seems to have found a sweet spot on that issue. Louis shares with us how he approaches picking jobs to take and what are the benefits of having a studio company over being a single freelancer. While being your own boss has some responsibility and cost, it surely has the advantage of having a more decisive and personal influence on what you create.
There are plenty of interesting insights in this episode so enjoy, watch, listen, and stay tuned for the next parts where we talk about 3d software, blender, z-brush, sculpting, VR, and the metaverse.
