Session 262

12:00–13:00 CEST (UTC+02:00), Thursday, 6 August 2020 ICTs and Sports Thematic Workshop

Virtuals is a media dedicated to the understanding and promotion of virtual production and real-time filmmaking. We explore the changes brought by real-time technology to the art and business of film production as well as immersive and interactive experiences.

Our scope ranges from new storytelling trends and recent evolutions in 3D pipelines to market analysis and industry news, covering a global phenomenon that is shaping the future of entertainment.

 Technology democratized virtual world creation. The lower barriers to entry is great news for individuals or small teams that want to create something entirely within a real-time engine, either as an indie project, as previz or as a pilot for something bigger.
