We’re pretty sure that 2020 might not have been what any of us expected or maybe even hoped for, but it certainly brought upon major shifts and learning curves. As we navigate through all of that and think of our community, speakers, partners and sponsors, our whole team reflects on the past year with gratitude. The connections we build every day have a way of keeping us together during weird times.

We hope that this year’s CGA Belgrade online conference inspired you to keep your head up and work towards your dreams as much as we got inspired by you, our community, to move into 2021 and prepare more activities for you to participate in!

CGA 2020 was a sneak peek into 2021 concept of CGA annual online platform that offers curated different-size events aiming to create lasting connections and community knowledge base in the midst of global pandemic. We’ve taken a careful note of your needs and divided our content into 4 main pillars, CGAcademy, CGArts, CGAlliance and CGAfterHours for you to delve into.

CGAcademy will consist of educational content that will help students and entry-level artists work their way up in the VFX, gaming, animation and computer graphics industry. We’ll cut right to the chase with CGAcademy sessions and make sure you don’t wander off the right learning path. With their expertise, Crater Training Center team will be engaged in steering the bite-size content together with our partner network, bridging the ever-present gap between formal education and industry.

CGArts will be there to fuel your creative fire while demonstrating the latest creative achievements, original ideas and projects that push the envelope further every year. A dedicated space for artistic discussion and interdisciplinary collaboration, curated by VFX Serbia.

CGAlliance will carefully gather business insights and find different ways towards stakeholder collaboration. Sparking the ideas of all kinds, CGAlliance content curated by Serbia Film Commission will offer solutions and opportunity perspective when it comes to growing CG industry in Serbia.

And last, but certainly not the least, the fourth track CGAfterHours will lift your spirits high after a long working day with space to casually chit-chat, traditionally network, share what inspires you or just crack some jokes. It’s your turn to add some personal flavor to CGA events.

Until then, enjoy these CGA 2020 sessions that are now available on our YouTube channel. And for all of you who registered this year and would like to make “I will learn Houdini” your New Year’s resolution, don’t forget to look inside the Digi Bag we sent to you after the conference for a special discount on Houdini course at Crater Training Center.

We wish you a year filled with health, joy and inspiration! Happy New Year!
