Captain Disillusion is many things: A skeptic of heroic proportions, YouTube sensation, VFX aficionado, Blender user, CG Cookie user and alter ego, Alan Melikdjanian.
With over 700,000 YouTube subscribers and over 44 million views of his videos, the Captain has succeeded by debunking visual trickery in pop culture. He does this by breaking down and recreating the visual effects used to achieve said trickery. His success has earned him keynote presentations at conferences and an interview on the H3 podcast.
The Captain is generously taking time away from saving gullible eyes to discuss his Blender/VFX skills, YouTube success, and whatever else comes up!
