Imaging the future 2011

I will be in Neuchâtel tomorrow for the Imaging the Future Symposium. I think it will be my 3rd time attending. I even spoke there in 2009 (answered a few questions about DMM at the end of Raphaël Arrigoni’s talk presenting Pixelux.) Each edition was great and I got to meet lots of very interesting people. So really looking forward to it! A few speakers:

  • Nicolas Aithadi, VFX supervisor, The Moving Picture Company, GB – X-Men: First Class (Vaughn, 2011), Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (Yates, 2010)
  • Marc Umé, VFX supervisor, Digital Graphics, DE – The Secret of Kells (Moore & Twomey, 2009), Home (Meier, 2008)
  • Hugues Martin, VFX supervisor, Independent, FR – Mirages (Selhami, 2010), Djinns (H. & S. Martin, 2009)
  • Karen Goulekas, VFX supervisor, Independent, US – Green Lantern (Campbell, 2011), 10’000 BC (Emmerich, 2008), The Day After Tomorrow (Emmerich, 2004), The Fifth Element (Besson, 1997)
