Getting Virtual

It was just about 20 years when movies changed forever. We were introduced to re-incarnated dinosaurs in Jurassic Park (1993) with combined digital creatures and live action. Then there was Jim Carrey transforming into a real-life cartoon character in The Mask in 1994, and Toy Story in 1995, the first totally CG movie made with 3D tools. Since that time the use of matte painting, miniatures, sculpted creatures, etc. has all but disappeared, replaced by digital models and art and we are awash in new content creation technology that is being built to better combine real world content with digital content. Reality is the new frontier.

The annual JPR Luncheon will look at the next gen technologies.

  • Real world capture including: depth cameras, lidar, 360 surround cameras
  • New tools for editorial, world building and lighting: real time set digital set editing, AR and VR visualization, real time rendering
  • True re-use of assets as CAD and Content Creation come together
  • Better resource management tools for asset tracking, compute management and time management

PRESS REGISTRATION

The real change is coming from new practices, better integration of tools from all vendors, and intelligence transfer.

Great, so how does that happen?

The JPR luncheon panel will feature a discussion by people who are building new workflows. They’ll talk about what they are doing today and what they hope to be doing in the future.

Our Sponsors and speakers always put on a great presentation and the luncheons are always at capacity so if you’re a media member planning on covering SIGGRAPH please register early. Our last event in LA was one of our very best and a packed house.

You’ll be meeting with talented creative people in the industry and technology leaders. Invited attendees will also be entered in a raffle for great gifts.

Doors open to the event at 11:30, the buffet will start around 11:45.The panel will begin at 12:15 followed by the raffle, coffee dessert demos and networking. The luncheon, in addition to providing you with unique and contemporary ideas and viewpoints, will also give you the opportunity for one-on-one interviews.
