    KEMP PRODUCTIONS WINS IN THE ArtVPS INTERNATIONAL RENDERING CONTEST

    Oct 2012

    Honor Issuer: ArtVPS

    Honor Description:

    "Third place went to Duane Kemp, who uses Shaderlight for animations and stills for his work at Kemp Productions. His render of this interior won him $50 Amazon vouchers.

    Martin Cox said of the image: “We know that Duane creates some great work using Shaderlight so it’s no surprise that one of his images was selected by the judges. The first thing that jumps at you in this render is the camera angle, which is not one that you see every day. We were also impressed with the use of shadows from the objects and plants which really shows off Shaderlight’s lighting features.”
