With the educational as well as international character that feeds the conference, special attention will be paid to successful people from Serbia who have built a career in the world and best represent the potential for the development of the computer graphics industry in our country. At the same time, the honorary title of the ambassador of the second CGA conference in Belgrade came to the actor Stefan Kapicic, the first actor in our space to interpret the character of Marvel's hero. This work experience in films that use intense visual effects prompted him to accept this invitation.
"It is my great honor and privilege to be the ambassador of such an imaginative conference as CGA Belgrade and, as far as I can, I give maximum support to Serbia's position on the world map," Kapicic said. – It's not a rare case here, in Los Angeles, the world-renowned names from the film industry is the best way to refer to honest people and studies from our country with whom they worked on some projects in the field of visual effects. And the congratulations I hear, as well as the results I had the opportunity to see, I put them on the shoulders with industry leaders – said our actor.
