Join us for Virtual Production Week 2022!

January 24, 2022
Around the globe in film and television studios of all sizes, virtual production is revolutionizing pipelines from previs to final pixels. Join us this week, January 24-28, as we celebrate its success with some of the industry's leading lights. We’ll be posting new content every day, so be sure to check back for your daily dose of inspiration!

Highlights include an exclusive fireside chat with Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy, coming your way on Wednesday. Hear about how technology has shaped her forty-year career in film production and what she believes the future holds.

Right now, you’ll find a great presentation by PROXi Virtual Production, who’ll talk about their cutting-edge work on films like The Suicide Squad. We’re also excited to present our new Virtual Production Sizzle Reel, featuring amazing content from filmmakers around the world. Check it out!
 
Be sure to come back tomorrow, Tuesday, to join Academy Award-winning director Mark Andrews (Brave) for a look at the role virtual production is playing on Reel FX’s latest project Super Giant Robot Brothers!. The presentation features never-before-seen footage from the new high-end action-comedy Netflix series.

On Wednesday, we’ll have presentations by The Third Floor, NVIZ, and Halon Entertainment, who explain how they are using virtual production techniques that go far beyond traditional previs to plan and visualize projects like The Mandalorian, The Midnight Sky, and Free Guy.

Then, join us on Thursday for a special episode of Inside Unreal with award-winning director Elizabeth Ito and Xanadu creator Cory Strassburger.

Completing the line up, we’ll have brand-new spotlights that take an in-depth look at DNEG Animation’s latest animated short Mr. Spam Gets a New Hat, and Chromosphere’s foray into using a real-time pipeline for 2D/3D hybrid animation on Yuki 7. Plus, we’ll be catching up with some of the Unreal Fellowship alumni.

We’ll also be taking a look at the Shorts India Program, which celebrated the creativity of Indian storytellers, and resulted in a fascinating array of thought-provoking narratives and whimsical animated tales.
Over the week, you’ll also get a chance to review some great content you may have missed, and see all the extensive free virtual production training and reference resources that are available.

We hope you enjoy Virtual Production Week!
