DTU Computer Graphics Artist is the April winner of Fox’s Got Talent

Nguyen Le Hoang, a VFX Supervisor & CG Artist from Duy Tan University, created a beautiful piece of artwork entitled White Cliffs, that resembled an oil-painting of a small house built on a cliff. He used Houdini, Redshift and Nuke software and plugins and became the April Fox’s Got Talent Winner.

Fox’s Got Talent (FGT) enables Fox Renderfarm users to exhibit their CG artwork skills. Renderfarm is the largest around-the-clock commercial rendering company, offering world-class professional CPU & GPU solutions and tailor-made rendering services, compliant to MPAA (TPN) Security Standards. 
The winning entry will be exhibited in the "Fox's Got Talent” gallery and shared on the Fox Renderfarm social media platform.  Nguyen Le Hoang’s inspiration for “White Cliffs” came from "UP", a Walt Disney animation movie produced of 2009, which impressed him by its humanitarianism, peaceful nature and beautiful surroundings.

In an exclusive interview, Nguyen Hoang talked about how he created his picture that looks like a beautiful oil-painting. He explained: “The lighting is my favorite aspect of this work because it creates the overall mood.  As for 3D, the most difficult part is the creation of realistic cliff scenery, so I found a way to displace the cliff by the slope mask in Houdini.”
“My job at the DTU Silver Swallows Studio requires non-stop creativity, both technically and visually, and allows me to learn more about Computer-Generated Imagery. I was surprised to be the April FGT winner but am so happy because it motivates me to pursue my dreams further.”
Le Hoang was also a VFX Supervisor for the “Vietnam Airwar: The First Swallows” documentary, a non-profit project developed by DTU Silver Swallows Studio, which premiered on April 26, 2019. Hoang won 3 prizes in the CG Artist Danang Challenge.
