HP's ZED Pop-Up VFX Conference Slated to Begin This Week
Hewlett-Packard is bringing back its ZED pop-up studio at the Vinyl Factory in Soho, London beginning this week (26th) and running until Oct 10th. ZED is a conference that features talks, tutorials, and creative sessions from the UK's most popular VFX studios like Jellyfish Pictures, The Mill, Double Negative, and Chaos Group. For almost a year, HP has used events like ZED (named for its high end workstations) to promote its products towards VFX studios and creatives in general, something companies like Apple have consistently done for years. ZED events are free until events are full, but you must register at HP's website, which has a comprehensive itinerary of speakers, events, times, and dates. ZED is a great opportunity for creatives to learn some valuable advice from and network with professionals working in the VFX industry today.
