Innovation in VFX
By: Laurent Taillefer and Wayne Brinton– Atomic Fiction
In recent years we have seen an explosion with some of the world’s largest VFX house, spreading across the globe, in an effort to keep up with the Hollywood’s VFX demands. In the midst of this, companies such as Atomic Fiction have been working hard to define the role of medium sized facilities, and how they can keep up with these larger facilities. Laurent Taillefer, head of 3d for the Montreal office of Atomic Fiction, and Wayne Brinton, VFX Supervisor with Atomic Fiction, will lead us through the studio’s work on recent films such as: Transformers 5, Star Trek, Deadpool, Allied and Ghost In The Shell, to illustrate various aspects of the innovations, concepts and methods medium sized facilities are using to stay competitive. From large-scale environment building to cloud rendering, resource training, photoreal animation tools, and adoption of open studio standards, they will take you on a tour of modern post-production forward thinking!
