Leviathan and Autodesk
I came of age with Autodesk’s AutoCad Rel. 9. I think I still have a copy on three 3.5″ floppy disks in the attic somewhere. I can tell you it was nothing like what they put out now. It ran on a 486dx66 with an outboard math coprocessor, and I was the king of 3D. Autodesk has really stepped up in the last couple of years, though, and Leviathan is a heavy user of their Entertainment Creation Suite. The folks at Leviathan have been involved in making the visual package for Amon Tobin’s ISAM tour since the beginning, along with partners in crime V Squared Labs, and ……..The results speak for themselves. They do quite a lot of stuff, including visuals for Skrillex.
These vids, made by Autodesk, are a great peek into the hyper-graphic, computer-generated world of Leviathan- I can only imagine walking into work every day and getting to hang with this crew. It looks like a total blast! Can’t wait for ISAM to be in Chicago, Sept. 8th. I’ll have to see if i can buy the LVTHN crew a drink!
