Kononchik Arts (KA) is founded by Brian Kononchik in April 2010. The goal of Kononchik Arts is to work hand in hand with other freelancers and companies to make computer based entertainment. Kononchik Arts works on video games, movies, short movie clips and animation, and special effects.
Kononchik Arts works with various industry leading programs from Autodesk such as 3ds Max, Mudbox, MotionBuilder and many more. Adobe products is something else KA uses on a daily basis, such as their Photoshop, Illustrator, and After Effects programs. Founder Brian Kononchik discovered a new gaming engine called Unity3d back in January 2010 and has been working with it since. When founding Kononchik Arts he brought his Unity knowledge with him and feels that Unity is going to be the future engine for independent gaming companies since it has the ability to develop for multiple platforms such as Windows, Mac, Iphone, Wii, and soon to be Xbox and PS3 in the new 3.0 release.
Kononchik Arts currently has its hands deep in two large game projects, one with Voodoo Gaming Company, and one with the founder of Teretz Studios, Jason James ([email protected]). Kononchik Arts works with many different freelancers and companies to develop top of the line CG Entertainment. KA just doesnt outsource certain jobs to freelancers and other developers but works with them to achieve a high quality finished product. Kononchik Arts also works with various photographers, as well as does some photography ourselves, to help bring a real world perspective to the computer generated images and models KA develops.
Kononchik Arts doesn't just make great CG Entertainment but also does a lot of testing with programs, concepts, plug-ins, and scripts. KA goes through and compiles numerous tutorials and plug-in that would help an inspiring graphics artist or animator get started and become more proficient in their desired profession. Research and development is something else that KA has recently been getting into with Unity3d and Autodesks 3ds Max in mind.
Kononchik Arts and its major affiliates are growing in the entertainment industry and on its way to become a major name.
