The Visual Cast podcsat is a weekley, recorded live visual podcast, were we interview some of the best, most influential and most talented visual artists from around the world!
We break up the interview with the "set", a interactive portion of the cast where the guest chooses what they want to share with us!! It can be anything from a live generative visuals set to a show and tell of a past project, or in this case a deep dive into Procedural Realtime workflows.

Thank you so much for watching and again a massive thanks to Julius for coming on!
