Panel Discussion: 05.03.2016
Blank Space is collaborating with Westerdals ACT to host a panel discussion about concept art, what it was, what it is, and what it will be.
We welcome our panelists:
as well as our moderator:
Neil Ross, best known for his concept and visual development work in big Hollywood films and animations such as The Jungle Book , 2014, Tron: Uprising, Paranorman, Hotel Transylvania , 2008, The Prince of Persia/ The Sands of Time, The Golden Compass, The Croods, The Corpse Bride, Space Jam, Braveheart, and The Cobbler and the Thief.
However, in this show, Mr. Ross presents his personal works that encompass the depth of a true creative soul: one that does satiate at simple tasks or concepts, one that does not stop at any point in the pursuit of curiosity. His passion for creating art does not begin or end in the visual, but extends to the How’s and Why’s of the historical and the philosophical. Mr. Ross questions not only how to make a beautiful picture, filled with the skills of someone who has worked in a highly competitive business for over 30 years, but also The Golden Question of “What’s the point?”. This gives his work a uniqueness that bounds beyond something pleasing to the eye, but extends into questioning what was, what is, and what will be without pretension.
