Working in Feature Film VFX
Have you ever wondered how a computer science degree could possibly lead to a career in Hollywood? With over twenty-five years of experience, Digital Domain visual effects supervisor Thad Beier has witnessed a sea change in the way films are made. Visual effects were once considered a post-production process reserved mainly for popcorn flicks, but the industry has since evolved into a form of digital production that can be as essential to a film’s development as the script. Thad will discuss the challenges of large-scale production, from digital asset management to software and pipeline development at a leading studio with hundreds of employees and multiple locations.
