With Academies, Masterclasses, panel discussions, presentations and more, Total Chaos was a perfect event for anyone who wanted to jumpstart their career in CG.
Chaos Group Academy
A few days before Total Chaos 2019, we held our first Chaos Group Academy of the year. Nine participants from eight countries flew to Sofia, Bulgaria, to become certified V-Ray Mentors — the highest level of V-Ray certification available.
The three-day academy started with essential rendering theories and V-Ray knowledge, continued with a hands-on workshop and concluded with training on the essential presentation skills required to pass on knowledge.
By completing the three-day course, the qualified attendees can now organize their own exams and accredit other V-Ray Certified Professionals. Congratulations to all our new V-Ray Mentors!

Total Chaos 2019 kicked off with a dedicated day packed with opportunities to learn from industry renowned professionals. Read more about what happened during the Masterclasses at Total Chaos this year in our recap.
Panel Discussion: 'Education — Take control of your future'
Before beginning an education in the CG industries, there are many things that prospective students must consider. Which university or college should you go to, and which course should you take? How will your tutors stay up-to-date with a rapidly changing industry, and how do you keep your skills topped up when you graduate? And why go to a bricks-and-mortar establishment when you can teach yourself online?
These questions, and many more, were answered by the “Education — Take control of your future” panel at Total Chaos. Hosted by Ian Failes, expert panelists included Blur Studio’s Oded Raz, Brick Visual’s András Káldos, and CG instructors Anthony Christov (IDEA Academy), Nicklas Byriel Pedersen (3D College Denmark) and Adán Martín (3D Collective), who each gave solid advice on education and skills development.
