This last Monday, I did a ZBrush training to the first year students of the ESMI school in Bordeaux. I like giving a training as it is always a good way to have the question that you don’t want to have, and then, you need to mix your knowledge to find the answer. Then, it’s a good way for me to learn too!

But the most important point of the day was the visit of the ex french Prime Minister, Alain Juppé (EN). He is currently the Bordeaux’s Mayor and decided to visit the school. We didn’t really know why he wanted to visit the school, but after some Google searches, I found that they want to create a kind of University Campus (FR) downtown, because of the hudge number of existing schools in the area.

Juppé came to my classroom and then, discover ZBrush. I wasn’t in his mind, but he didn’t gave me the impression of someone who had a lot of interest (perhaps too « old » for this kind of new technology). I also show him one of our demo real, including the Pirate of the Caribbean, Beowulf, Assassin creed, etc..  His reaction was clear: « Humm, a lot of violence and monsters »… Well, yes, he wasn’t right. Politically correct…

He did a small test of ZBrush on the Cintiq because I think he had the feeling that he have too… I just hope that this visit will bring some visibility of the ESMI School. It’s a young training center with a lot of motivation, then we will see if something new will happen in the next month, following this visit!

I’m so happy to do my 3D, discussing with artists and users, with my students and I’m so glad not doing political stuff! :)

  1. But I’d vote for you Thomas!

  2. No way, I don’t see me doing some politics! Perhaps later in the futur, when I will be old. But right now, even if I’m interesting in the politic, their is some things like I don’t understand (like the influence of the lobbying, obscure stuff, etc.. :)
    But thank you for your vote Marcus!
