24 Hours of Chaos recordings — out now!
Re-watch all 10 shows from our epic livestream.

Industry events are the cornerstone of our community and it's been tough not catching up in person in 2020. That’s why we teamed up with some of the most active CG leaders and organizations to bring the industry back together for 24 hours of community chaos.


Learn, get inspired and have fun

Join us for in-depth presentations, behind-the-scenes demonstrations, discussions quizzes and giveaways with the CG industry's true innovators. It's a unique chance to learn more about global trends, analyze issues and — most importantly — have some fun!

10 shows in 24 hours

24 Hours of Chaos is a series of 10 back-to-back livestream sessions put together by Chaos Group, Autodesk, 3ds London and many more great partners, which will allow us to reconnect, share new ideas, offer inspiration and show our solidarity.

We begin our globe-trotting tour in London, then pass the mic every two to four hours, taking in Sao Paolo, New York, Montreal, Los Angeles and Vancouver, Nelson, Adelaide, Bali, New Delhi before reaching Sofia, our final destination and the home of Chaos Group. Each show features artists from a wide variety of CG industries and many countries in the corresponding time zone.
