Technical Art for Animation and VFX

Produced By Conference 2009

Posted in motion capture on May 25th, 2009

I signed up for this year’s Produced By Conference. There are a couple mo-cap related talks this year – one hosted by the Motion Capture Society.

Here’s a quick description from the PGA’s site:

Presented by the Producers Guild of America and hosted by Sony Pictures Studios, the Produced By Conference brings together the entire producing profession—from acclaimed Oscar and Emmy winners, to experienced team members, to the young storytellers who represent the next generation of creative entrepreneurs.

I primarily signed up for film oriented sessions that had topics relating to motion capture and VFX. I’m especially interested to see how Cameron views his experiences on Avatar.

A1 – Profile: James Cameron – Seeing The Future in 3D
B4 – The Collaborative Process of Visual Effects: From Previs To Post
C10 – Performance/Motion Capture Production Technology
A8 – Profile: Pixar Method of Producing
C6 – Made In The USA: Navigating Domestic Tax Incentives Sponsored by Entertainment Partners
D2 – Assembling A First-Rate Producing Team: How To Get Hired By The Best In The Biz
A3 – Profile: Gordon On Gordon, How To Be A Great Creative Producer Sponsored by American Airlines
A5 – Who Does What? The Role of The Creative Producer Sponsored By Plymouth Rock Studios
A7 – *World Premiere* PGA/ASC Camera Assessment Series
B9 – A New Dimension: 3D Stereoscopic Production Sponsored By Real D

Should be a great weekend with lots to talk about. I’ll toss up some notes once things calm down again.
