Hristo Velev is the founder and leader of Bottleship

- a VFX boutique specializing in complex dynamic effects and procedurals - the fun stuff like blowing things up, but also the grownup responsible stuff like building cities and planets, to, yes - blow them up!

His talk "Endless road - a journey of adventure and discovery in VFX" is a speedrun through the philosophical, technical and leadership growth journey of a decade in the VFX industry. From humble 3DS Max architecture freelancing, through hardcore blockbuster FX, to leading a team in a Houdini transformation. How understandings deepen, tools get broad and layered, with some recent case studies and a look at the way things are going.
