Side Effects Software is offering a one-day introductory-level course 
for Houdini 3D animation tools.

“First Date with Houdini” will guide you through the essential 
introductions to the procedural workflow. You will see some of the 
advantages of this workflow, but with no permanent commitments 
necessary! This artist-friendly, hands-on workshop, designed and taught 
by an artist for artists, brings a sense of play into the learning 
experience. Through this exploration of Houdini’s toolset, you will 
begin to discover the vast creative possibilities accessible for your 
next project.

The instructor is 12 year CG veteran Jim Ellis. Jim has taught at Loyola 
Marymount, workshops at CalArts and was recently profiled in Peter 
Weishar's book “CGI: the Art of the 3D Computer Generated Image”. In 
2002, he toured as a real-time “Touch” animator for Canadian rockers 
“Rush”. Jim’s films screen at such diverse venues as Siggraph, ACM1, Los 
Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Museum of Contemporary Art.

This course is for Houdini beginners and established CG artists new to 
Houdini. Attendees do not need prior Houdini experience. This course is 
ideal for those interested to learn what Houdini has to offer for a new 
project and for artists seeking a starting point for their future 
Houdini exploration and skill development.
