Los Angeles, CA (November 29, 2017) --
Since its launch, KitBash3d has taken the visual effects industry by storm with its premium 3D assets. Earlier this year, hundreds of visual effects artists from around the globe submitted to KitBash’s #KB3Dcontest. On December 4th, the top 20 contestants will participate in the Kitmas Bash: the first livestreamed concept art tournament.

The tournament will be live streamed every weekday morning at 10AM PST between  December 4th - 15th at www.KitBash3d.com/live on Twitch.

The tournament will take place in rounds, with creative challenges developed by top industry artists including Beeple (Everydays), John Sweeney (The Last of Us 2), George Hull (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) and others. In each round the artists will be able to win prizes from KitBash3d and the event sponsors - Red Shift, GreyScaleGorilla and Fabrik. When the tournament is reduced to the final four, players will be teamed up with all-star industry coaches who will mentor them through to the championship.

“We’ve crafted the tournament to mimic what it’s like working on AAA games and blockbuster films, where time is the most precious currency. During the different rounds, contestants will have anywhere from 2- 24 hours to complete given tasks based on a brief,” says KitBash3d co-founder and matte painter Maxx Burman. Burman has worked on studio projects like Iron Man 3, Game of Thrones and Far Cry 5.

“We are thrilled that so many people have participated in this tournament so far. Artists from all over the world have been pouring out amazing work with our sample kits and we are looking forward to see what they make in the Bash. There are some incredibly talented artists participating. I have no idea how the audience is going to choose a winner!” KitBash3d co-founder Banks Boutté added.
