Trojan Horse was a Unicorn Announces New Speakers, Meet-Ups, and THU TV

TED-Like Digital Art Festival Has Now Revealed 31 Speakers; Sold Out Festival Can Still Be Watched Via THU TV                                                                                                  
Tróia, Portugal – June 10, 2015 – As any fan will tell you,  Trojan Horse was a Unicorn (THU) never ends. The festival continues that tradition today by announcing a fresh line-up of renown  speakers, regional meet-ups, and THU TV. The THU experience is now accessible all year long.

“THU is moving from ‘The Little Engine That Could’ to a full-blown community that incites passion all around the world,” said Scott Ross, THU ambassador and former CEO of Digital Domain. “Artists fly in from all over just to be a part of it, and this year, THU is unveiling even more ways to get involved.”

Joining  Scott Ross as one of the keynote speakers is Craig Mullins. A 20 year veteran, Craig’s work has been used in “Tron: Uprising” and “The Matrix Revolutions”; as well as on games like “Halo”, “Fallout 3”, “BioShock” and “Assassin’s Creed”. Known for his concept art and matte paintings, Craig also invented digital “speedpainting” while at Industrial Light & Magic; a feat that helped earn him a spot on ImagineFX’s “Top 50 Most Inspirational Living Artists” list.

Other new speakers include:

  • Ian McCaig – Concept designer for “Star Wars Episode VII”
  • Alberto Mielgo – Emmy-winning art director of “The Beatles: Rock Band”
  • Shane Mahan – Legacy Effects founder, Supervisor on “Pacific Rim” and “Life of Pi”
  • Kim Jung Gi – Popular Korean illustrator known for his intricate “mental pictures”
  • Robh Ruppel – Art director for “Uncharted” creator, Naughty Dog

Since the show only happens once a year, THU has spent the last four months hosting  meet-ups as a way to connect artists after it ends. Featuring expert speakers and a unique theme, each meet-up takes place in a major city around the globe. New additions announced today, include Warsaw (on June 12th) and London (on July 4th).

Knowing that some artists just can’t make it to an event, THU now offers a way to participate from home through THU TV. A paid channel, THU TV will broadcast the entire Sept. event 24-hours a day for all five days. The channel’s special tickets were so popular that they sold out in only 2 days. More info can be found  here.

“Sharing info and building networks is what helps artists band together,” said Andre Luis, Founder of THU. “With THU TV and these meet-ups, artists have even more ways to connect.”
