How Many Artists Does It Take To Render A Lightbulb?

A session at BACON 2012

Saturday 21st April, 2012

2:45pm to 3:15pm (GMT)

The glamorous world of Visual Effects involves more than just hanging out with movie stars and dressing up in tuxedos to accept awards. We also write a lot of custom technology to enable our artists to help the director realise his vision. This spans the gamut from creating herds of woolly mammoths to blowing up Japanese pagodas, and managing terabytes of data as it flows between hundreds of artists across three timezones.
