The Dead Weather "Will There Be Enough Water"

May 13, 2020 08:12 am

I’ve always been a huge fan of Jack White, even if he’s notoriously a pain in the ass to be around. I was listening to Dead Weather and decided to look around for live shows, as I’m not sure i’ll ever be able to see them live, and found this GEM of a performance. This is what you call chemistry. If you notice at the end, Jack breaks a guitar string and doesn’t miss a lick.

Levelling Up

As I continue my career here at Primer, I’ve found my self needing to level up on rendering loops and working in a gaming type scenario. We render all of our materials through a game engine to throw light at our materials so we get the most realistic representation of our products as possible.

It’s challenging and exciting. As someone who’s always loved game development but never dabbled, I feel like a kid in a candy store right now. If you’re reading this and have any reccomendations on books to level up on shaders or SceneKit, let me know!
