How's this for good CGI?

China’s first motion capture animation film L.O.R.D. 爵迹 released its first sneak peek of its CGI, this time featuring actress Fan Bingbing.

Designs by China’s leading fashion designer will feature in the F4D & First Ladies Luncheon charity fashion show in New York later this month, and event organisers Miro Door are looking for volunteers.

Volunteers will be responsible for preparing garments, and dressing and styling models for the show. Interested candidates with experience in dressing at fashion events are encouraged to apply. Continue reading
