Are the any render farms in Hawaii?

Anyone who works in CGI is faced with the problem of rendering a project. Animations and dynamic simulations are incredibly fun to set up and look great in the 3D program de jour, but after lighting and texturing, project completion dates bottleneck with insanely long render times. My last project took 4 weeks to render 200 images. The results are photoreal but that's unacceptable and my (not off the shelf) computer almost blew a gasket and is still yelling at me.I've been looking at render…See More

About Me:
I hated driving in Honolulu. Most drivers can't use a turn signal, merge with authority or even drive the speed limit--they like to go really slow. But enough about me. More about me.
I've been paid to write for most of my career but really like staring into the unblinking eye of a computer screen and recreate nature and natural forces for the entertainment industry.

Kevin, The animation course will probably not be offered any time soon since it's not easy to get this presenter on a regular basis.You may add yourself to our eZine distribution which will alert you to new topics and upcoming courses & events. Go to and you'll see the link under "News & Events" for the "eZine". "Technical Generalist for Animation: Scripting in Python" might be of interest to you. The course starts on June 24 and is taught by Saty Raghavachary, Senior Software Developer at DreamWorks Animation. -Aloha, Beryl
