Workshop 1

Emerging Technology: Visualising the Future with Samat Algozhin Realtime Supervisor at The Third Floor

Entertainment is becoming ever more immersive, with virtual reality, augmented reality, and now mixed reality taking centre stage, film and TV productions are doing more with less - challenging what's possible with modern technology. It puts pipelines and creative processes to the test, but emerging technology such as lightfields and Realtime rendering could be the answer, and take visual effects closer to the world of Realtime and vice versa. Join Maya Master Lee Danskin in an exploration of what's on the horizon.

Workshop 2

Workshop 4

CREATING A PHOTOREALISTIC 3D CREATURE with Harin Hirani, Head of 3D at Freefolk

Creating creatures in 3D requires a lot of research! Referencing real animals is absolutely vital if you're going to pull off a believable character. It's all about planning and paying attention to everything step by step, from large-scale shapes to the finest details. Get a behind the scenes look at what goes into creating photorealistic computer-generated creatures for TV and film in this interactive and informative workshop.
