Why You Should Attend
New tools and workflows in software such as VR are opening doors to new and improved design processes facilitating better, faster iterations, leading to more creative solutions in Entertainment and Design.
Higher levels of audience sophistication and competition for impressions and eyeballs is fierce and only the most compelling images get noticed.
The Cloud standardizes project management tools facilitating and optimizing small and large productions and also offer unlimited, on-demand computing power.
Technology is driving disruptive changes in most industries: this event is focused on helping you keep up with those changes.
