3D CGI & Video Games Event featuring Scott Reschke and Joe Burak


Featured Presenter

Scott Reschke
CEO Strength in Numbers Game Studio

Scott grew up with a love for science fiction and fantasy during the hey-day of classic sci-fi television and films. In 2003 he opened his first business, a cyber café known as The FRAG Center in East Lansing, Michigan. He finished his Bachelors of Business Administration as well and graduated Magna Cum Laude from Ferris State University.
From 2013-2014 he undertook the massive effort of fundraising to start his second business, Strength in Numbers Studios, in order to bring his dream of storytelling and creativity to life. He successfully raised over one million dollars and hired a staff of up to 44 talented and creative game developers to bring Tuebor to life.
Tuebor is currently on Steam in Early Access and is approaching Gold Release in the Spring of 2017.


Featured Presenter

Joe Burak
3D Production Artist
Mackevision

Joe Burak is a freelance game artist, 3D production artist in the automotive industry, pixel artist, and pretends to be a good Overwatch player. In his day job he works with automotive clients working in 3D prepping automotive files to be used for the software Picture Shooter. Which allows automotive studios to take realistic renders of vehicles to resemble a real life white studio for production.

When not working with cars, Joe is working on freelance projects usually creating pixel art for graphics or indie game developments. Or if he has any down time is working on personal art projects, growing his skills as an artist, or taking part in community driven art competitions through polycount.”
