    Interview with Timothy Albee



    Interview with Timothy Albee - The Return of Independent Film Making

    Timothy Albee has been a staple of the LightWave community for years. Writing more than 6 books on LightWave, guest speaking at the NewTek booth at Siggraph and helping thousands of LightWave users improve there work in one way or another over the years. Then there is his short film, Kaze Ghost Warrior. A 22 minute short film done completely in LightWave 3D and the Video Toaster on just two computers in a span of 6 months.

    Tim does not take no for an answer... when he was told by major film companies LightWave was not a viable solution and that 25 million was not near enough for a feature animated film. Tim set off for the Alaskan wilderness to live modestly with out distraction and prove them wrong. Tim was able to produce Kaze, in 6 months for less than 10,000 dollars by himself. Is this practical, no, Tim understood that. But it does prove a very valid point that with drive, the right software and some time, anything is possible. Tim would say to you... "You try to create 22 minutes of quality animation, modeling, texturing and rendering a short film in Maya or 3DS Max in 6 months".

    The International LightWave 3D User Group is proud to interview Timothy Albee this Saturday at 12pm CST (10 am Pacific and 1pm Eastern).

    The topics of discussion will include the following:

    • Why LightWave?
    • Does LightWave still have the horsepower to do feature character animation?
    • Do your principals of animation still hold up today?
    • What do you think are the 3 biggest mistakes you see other aspiring filmmakers make?
    • Making it in this industry.
    • What do you think about the current direction of LightWave 3D?
    • What do you think is LightWave’s greatest strength?
    • What do you think is LightWave’s greatest weakness?
    • ... and more
