VIEW Conference Masterclass
The international VIEW Conference, Italy’s premiere event for Computer Graphics, Interactive and Immersive Storytelling, Animation, Visual Effects, Games, and VR, AR, Mixed Reality and AI, brings top professionals from those fields to the beautiful baroque city of Torino, Italy for a week of talks, presentations, and workshops.
Since it's inception nearly 20 years ago, the VIEW Conference has grown steadily.
But starting about five years ago, awareness of the conference throughout the world reached a critical mass. It is now not only the most important computer graphics conference in Italy, it is one of Italy’s most important events, and one closely watched by industry professionals worldwide. The two major entertainment industry publications, Variety and The Hollywood Reporter now cover the VIEW conference, as do leading computer graphics publications.
Also, the legendary composer and musician Hans Zimmer delivered one of the keynotes at VIEW.
The legendary, nine-time Oscar winning visual effects supervisor Dennis Muren keynoted the conference. The Oscar-winner industry visionary, Magic Leap’s Senior SVP, John Gaeta, and Oscar-winning director, Google Spotlight Stories Creative Director, Jan Pinkava also spoke at VIEW Conference last year.
And, among the many stellar speakers in 2018 were the heads of four important studios – Paramount Animation, Industrial Light & Magic, Netflix, and Cartoon Saloon: Mireille Soria, Rob Bredow, Phil Rynda and Nora Twomey. Our list of speakers also included Pacific Data Images co-founder Glenn Entis; Bill Watral, VFX supervisor for Pixar’s “Incredibles 2;” Jay Worth, VFX supervisor for HBO’s “Westworld;” Co-founder and Chief Creative Officer at Nordeus, Milan Jovovic; and Jan-Bart Van Beek, Guerrilla Games’ studio art director.
I’m was one of the Teacher at the VIEW Conference. My masterclass was focused on: Demonstrating the effects of priming, how people can be susceptible to such suggestions and how to solve it with Design, our brain process and connective intelligentsia.
