NewTek Magazine Article on Iron Sky.

NewTek is really pushing hard with Iron Sky it seems. This is good. People need to know that you can do that much more with LightWave than you can do with Maya because of costs, time and people.

It would have to be a paid webinar unfortunately I think. But we would hope to make it super affordable if we can arrange it.
