This workshop is designed for visual artists to start creating visuals using the Unity Game Engine. Taught by experienced VJ and media artist Fader, in this intimate hands-on course you will learn to create interactive and generative visual environments. At the completion you will have a good understanding of the workflow, code environment, and knowledge on building your very first interactive application.

Unity is one of most popular game engines (builder) available in the market today. It has a free license model where you can compile and build for VR, mobile, desktop, indie, and commercial game platforms. With large active user community, it makes Unity a very good choice for none programmers and artists to experiment and start using it as their visual generation tool.

Some programming experience (Processing, Openframeworks, Quartzcomposer) is a plus but not required. You will need to install the latest version of Unity on your PC or Mac laptop before attending this workshop.
