CGIF was started by Midge Sinnaeve (The Mantissa) and Johan Belmans (Belly). Both artists have around for a while in the CG Industry. Wanting to give back to the CG community by sharing their experiences and bringing people together, CGIF was created. Previously, these event were named MUG and 3D Meetup. The new concept stems from a desire to include more artists, so we’d like to welcome everyone doing anything 3D, VFX and Motion Design to join us and hang out.
We’re aiming to meet regularly on Friday nights in Antwerp. Locations and dates will be announced on this website, and our Twitter and Facebook pages. We offer some drinks and conversation about nerdy computer stuff. The aim is to create relaxed environment where we can share our collective experiences and start building an open community for creatives. In the future, we’d like to organize more elaborate events, but we’ll talk about those more once we get there. ;)
