Prizes at SPARK FX

In addition to a fantastic line-up of presentations, this year’s SPARK FX Conference features an amazing assortment of prizes.

On Friday, 14 February, we will be raffling off a Production Collective License from our friends at Foundry; a prize worth over $10,000!

Tickets to the opening night mixer and panel presentation, where you can ask a VFX supervisor all of those questions you’ve always wanted to but were afraid to ask, are only $10.

The Friday night mixer and panel are also included with your Weekend pass.

Raffles will take place at the end of each conference session on Saturday, 15 February.

Rendering for Winners

Gears 5 used Clarisse iFX, now you can too!

The good folks at Isotropix have provided a permanent indie node-locked Clarisse iFX licence, with maintenance included; a $999 value! After the year is up, you just pay a maintenance renewal to keep up to date.

This prize will be raffled on Sunday, 16 February at the end of the “Tacking Towards Real-Time & Virtual” session, after ‘A Cinematic Challenge: Going Real-Time in Gears 5’.

Tickets to the session are $20. Day passes to the Open Source Summit are $50.

Better yet, a Weekend pass will get you access to all of the sessions including the Open Source Summit!

Ask a Laywer

The real [legal] McCoy is offering SPARK attendees the opportunity for 1-2 hours of small group consulting on open source law, policy or philosophy + an intro to virtual open source program office services at newly launched Opsequ.io.

McCoy Smith is the founding attorney of Lex Pan Law (US) and former Intel technology and intellectual property attorney. The draw will be at the start of the first session at 9:30 am on Sunday, 16 February.

This prize is priceless; we know a good lawyer is hard to find!
