We invite you to join us in New York City on November 16 & 17 at Convene (1 Liberty Plaza) for the following workshop presentations, where world-class creators and leaders in the industry will be leading conversations at the frontier of storytelling:
Moving past the “fix it in post” model of production, the virtual production pipeline relies on preparation to ensure a successful production. Join Epic Games’ Industry Manager of Film & Television, Miles Perkins, Mariana Acuña Acosta (Co-Founder, Glassbox Technologies), and Felix Jorge (CEO, Creator Director & Founder, Happy Mushroom) and Liz Montes (Head of Production, The Third Floor) who will walk you through the advantages of this new workflow.
Explore the real-time process of writing in Unreal through the eyes of Emma Needell (Writer, The Water Man) and Vivian Yoon (Writer for studios such as Netflix, Amazon, RYOT Studio), who will illustrate how Unreal Engine strengthened the creative development of their upcoming projects from inception to final draft. The discussion is moderated by Karen Dufilho (Executive Producer, Epic Games).
Unreal Engine is capable of bridging the gap between a director and the production team, removing the guesswork and working toward a shared vision. Learn how a director and cinematographer work together in Unreal Engine to develop the cinematic language of the film and how this leads to a more visually cohesive production from Cinematographer and Director Kathryn Brillhart and James Geduldick (Cinematographer & Director, Virtual Production & SVP Dimension North America). Moderated by filmmaker, director & writer c. Craig Patterson
Virtual production keeps producers and the production team steps ahead of a typical process, providing an affordable way to location scout, the ability to error-proof budgets by pre-visualizing scenes, and much more. It can also create content used in pitch materials to attract production companies, investors and financiers, ensuring that filmmakers are finding partners who can share their vision. Jake Sally (COO, Jadu), Erik Weaver (Head of Adaptive Virtual Production, ETC) will speak to the cost-saving and efficiency techniques that virtual production provides.
