CG GARAGE PODCAST HOSTED BY CHRIS NICHOLS

 

Welcome to the home of the CG Garage podcast!

 

Every week, CG Labs director Chris Nichols publishes a new podcast. These lively, informal discussions have become essential listening for over 20,000 computer graphics fans around the world. Chris has interviewed hundreds of guests from Hollywood directors to talented 3D artists and everyone in between.

I'm lucky to have chatted with over a dozen Oscar winners, some of the world’s leading architects, legendary film directors, and some great friends with amazing stories. Subjects vary from technical talk, our favorite movies and how they were made, and future tech such as VR and light fields.

Chris Nichols, Host of CG Garage, Chaos Group Labs
