Small tests of new technology is something very common in a visual effects artist’s everyday life. They are usually tagged rnd (research and development) and I love to mix them with humor. “Drugs are bad, mkay?” is a small test of 3D scanning technology and Houdini’s latest position based dynamics feature. Mixed with the famous Southpark tag line from “Ike’s Wee Wee” episode, the video became popular on the visual effects community in Vimeo and viral on 9gag (http://9gag.com/gag/aArp0xp) as “When my crush tells me she likes me – as a friend.” after being brutally butchered of the famous tag line.

Georgios Papaioannou (GR)
Athens based visual effects artist and filmmaker with an engineering background. Started in the late 90s shooting no budget comedy with my friends. In November 2011, participated at the 52nd Thessaloníki International Film Festival with the zero budget film “Super Demetrios” and won the Audience Award for Best Greek Film along with the “Michael Cacoyannis” Honorary Award. In September 2012 moved to Los Angeles after being awarded with a Fulbright Scholarship to study at the Gnomon School of Visual Effects. Returned to Athens in April 2013 and since then working as a visual effects artist with studios and directors all around Europe. I love Monty Python, Stanley Kubrick, science and stepping out of the comfort zone.
