What Is Half Rez?

We started Half Rez to bring together 3D and 2D artists, animators and designers for a night of learning, drinking and hanging out.

We have presentations planned from designers and tons of fun games and prizes to give away. Come hang out with like minded folks and let’s us celebrate our craft and learn from each other the fun way. Check out the video below from the last three years to get a vibe of what Half Rez will be like.

Where

Lincoln Hall
2424 N Lincoln Ave
Chicago, IL 60614

When

Who

Motion Designers, 3D artists, and Artists of all types.

Why

Let’s be honest, most of us work behind computers all day. Come join us at Half Rez to get away from the black rectangle for a while and hang with and learn from other professionals and beginners just like yourself.
