BRINGING THE VIRTUAL TO REALITY

Weta Digital Sr. VFX Supervisor Joe Letteri’s groundbreaking work in visual effects has earned him four Academy Awards.

In this riveting session, Joe will discuss the changing landscape of visual effects creation and the integration of virtual tools into the film production process.

Joe has been at the critical forefront of many of today’s modern techniques, including the quintessential virtual production pipeline created through his work with James Cameron on AVATAR.

Joe will highlight how these techniques were used on Steven Spielberg’s recent THE BFG and trace their origins all the way back through THE HOBBIT and PLANET OF THE APES trilogies, AVATAR and THE LORD OF THE RINGS.
