I went in LA for a few weeks to meet people from Insomniac I'm used to work with. I also met new friends and new clients. I discovered on Instagram someone in Hollywood was doing a tattoo with a design I made, so I met him too!
I had the opportunity to visit & show my work to Otoy, creators of Octane Render.
I worked at Insomniac during a week in Beverly Hills. I made a new key visual for DreamState Australia using the HP laptop I received a while ago.
My experience with the HP ZBook G3 was very good because the dedicated GPU was able to handle the full city in the Live Viewer in Octane (faster than I thought), and I had no trouble with big files due to the 32GB RAM. When I had more space, I plugged a 2nd monitor & keyboard to it, and took control of my workstation in Switzerland via TeamViewer when I needed more power for rendering.
And I didn't even mention the weather and food...!
