SIGGRAPH Asia – Tech Makes YOU the Next Big Film Director

Visual effects guru and one of the world’s most visionary visual effects artists of the past decade, Chris Harvey (Watchmen, X-Men: The Last Stand, Zero Dark Thirty) is using technology to transform the world of film-making, with CGI being used/replaced by something far more exciting. Enter the world of TGI – technology generated imagery – the next generation of CGI where VR, AR, motion capture technologies and more, are used to render photo-realistic scenes in real-time. TGI now gives the potential for audiences to pick their cinematic experience in a film from whichever perspective they desire, not just from where the camera was filming, and without months of rendering overhead.

Not only this, but the next generation of film-making sees cutting-edge technologies – automated aerial drone photography, motion and facial capture, and more – dynamically create a digital scene, while a state-of-the-art creative real-time rendering engine allows multiple artists to simultaneously collaborate on any shot in that scene. Virtually limitless re-takes of a scene can be achieved, all without the overhead of traditional rendering time.

Using creative engines such as Unity, Chris is changing the visual storytelling narrative through the use of TGI and real-time rendering. Working with world renowned Film Director Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium, Chappie), he’s now taking cinematic experiences to greater heights at Oats Studios, known for its divergent use of cutting edge and experimental film-making technologies.
