Motionworks' Unplugged 20 features an interview with FXGuide co-founder John Montgomery:
"John Montgomery dreamt of working in film and television from a very early age. For the past 3 decades John has lived that dream, honing his craft as a visual effects artist on high-end systems such as Flame and Smoke. In this candid interview John reveals how he got started in the industry, and came to be co-founder of FXGuide and FXPhd. We discuss the relevance of high-end systems compared with desktop software such as Adobe After Effects, and talk in detail about FXPhd and what makes it different from other web-based visual effects training."
