Award-winning entertainment designer, author, and producer Kevin Lee Allen has learned a thing or two about creating jaw-dropping scenery from his experience designing everything from major Broadway productions to national commercials. Allen says that one of the biggest takeaways from his prolific design career is that, “it’s critical to show people what they’re going to get when you build something.” With that in mind, Allen hosted the Rendering Techniques to Empower Your Entertainment Design Workflow webinar to demonstrate how to create models that will give clients a clear understanding of your vision.
