CONNECTING ARTISTs WITH TECHNOLOGY.
WE ARE ARTISTS.
Foremost, we are artists. We create a vision that takes people into a story and shows them a world they can get lost in. We approach each project with a simple question "What can we do to make this story mean something?" Our tool is technology but our goal is art.
WE ARE DEVELOPERS.
The art can only be as great as the tools that are used to create them. A tool that that does one thing really well is better then many that do something 'okay'. We build tools we want to use as artists and we design systems that help us spend less time managing, organizing, and troubleshooting so we can spend more time creating.
WE ARE EDUCATORS.
Knowledge and experience are as priceless as quality and time. A knowledgeable and experienced artist and TD can create quality and time freely. The only way we know to get these characteristics is by sharing our knowledge openly. The more you share and show, the more you learn and grow in the process.
our goals and ambitions
FXMind is about one thing, Connecting Artists with Technology. Our goal, in the coming years, is to provide artists a with tools that connect each other together and allow them to work together in a seamless and simple fashion. In this day and age it is seems that in order to create great art and story you need huge technological systems and large funds to drive that creative force. We don't agree with this notion. We believe that five friends can produce the same quality of art and story that a major feature or game studio can. We believe the reason why this doesn't seem to happen a lot is because independent collective artists have not been given the tools to do so. We want to provide you those tools and experiences.
To have an FXMind is more than just about cool tools and amazing images. It is about using the knowledge and resources in our everyday lives to take people on a journey through a story. Whether it is a gripping drama about a child's hardships in a forsaken land or about space marines fighting for the survival of our planet, it is important realize that these narratives need more then explosions and big budgets. They need heart and story that is taken from our own lives. Having an FXMind means being an artist, a developer, and a educator. These three things, in our minds, are what make great stories and art come to life! We are here to show you how.
