After Vimeo’s presentation and a networking break, Kendra Ruczak, Managing Editor of Sound & Picture will be will be moderating a postvisualization panel discussion with HALON Entertainment. Sound & Picture is a crew-centric workflow magazine covering sound, cinematography, picture editing, visual effects, and the latest in gear and technology.
HALON Entertainment is the leading visualization company in the film, TV, and game industry. Part of their expertise is in postvisualization, the art of digitally placing assets in production photography to flesh out the story for final VFX and edit teams. We will be joined by HALON’s Clint G. Reagan, Tefft Smith II, and Casey Pyke, postvis supervisors and leads from films including “Logan,” “Kong: Skull Island,” and the upcoming “War for the Planet of the Apes.” They will discuss postvis’ crucial role not only in film, but in the art of storytelling.
