Conference - 2020 Real-Time Conference FREE & Online
When: Mon Apr 06, 2020 04:00am to 03:59am EDT

As you may know, over the last couple of years, we have been working hard to put together a one-of-a-kind event that would gather cross-industry pioneers from around the globe, and bring to you the most advanced real-time tools, technologies and practices that are changing the way we live and do business.

By this time, we should have been polishing the last details with our venues, preparing signs, printing out programs and badges, sending you directions… But 2020, it seems, has decided otherwise.

Still, we know that this community has the power, even – or maybe especially – in this disruptive time, to transform our practices and maintain communication across industries – together and in real-time. After all, digital agility is part of our DNA here at RealTime Conference, as we have been working with a 100% remote community from day 1. Since the COVID-19 pandemic thwarted our original plans for trans-Atlantic convenings, connected in real-time, we have been working relentlessly to pivot to bring you a 100% virtual RealTime Conference, without sacrificing the richness of our program, and remaining as engaged and interactive as possible. And we are grateful to have been blessed with such a supportive community of partners, speakers, and collaborators that is the RealTime family.

In the spirit of fellowship, community, solidarity, and faith in the future, we are waiving all registration fees, and invite you to join us, at no cost, at the RealTime Conference in real-time online.

This is your opportunity to connect, learn, and share with leaders and cutting-edge innovators who are forging the future of real-time engagement. You may be under the impression that real-time technology only impacts a few industries, but our incredible RealTime family, featuring top-tier speakers from companies such as Intel, Epic Games, Google, Facebook, Adobe, Activision, Foundry, Weta Digital, Magnopus, Spatial, Daimler, 3Lateral, Oculus VR, Digital Domain, Pixar, and more… will be sharing with you extraordinary real-time’s enabling technologies and present-day applications on their own infrastructure, business, and resources. Topics will touch on everything from “Crafting Real and Virtual Architecture in Real-Time” and “Fostering Customers Engagement Though Real-Time Interactive Experiences” to “Bringing Real-Time Pipelines to Movie Making” and “The Real in Real-Time Photoreal Digital Humans”.

Last, but not least, a panel will address a sensitive topic as of today: “How to address the current climate and what studios, producers and companies could do to combat this in the future by making the most of real time technology”.

While we are still tweaking the hows & abouts of this online conferencing, please bear with us, and check our website for updates!! We’ll be back soon with more details as to how to register and a full program of keynotes and panel discussion.

Lesley Robson-Foster – this year’s Empire Award honoree

Revered by broadcasters and directors, admired by the VFX industry, Lesley is a force of nature in her world. She has dedicated her professional life in the pursuit of perfection and she has come pretty close. In the process she has managed to push the envelope in some of the most prestigious television series in recent decades.

Lesley Robson-Foster’s career began at BBC television and continued at ILM until she eventually went on her own as a freelance visual effects supervisor.

She has shared her talents in NYC and LA on television series and feature films, including Six Feet Under, Sex and the City, The Wire, Ugly Betty, HBO mini-series Mildred Pierce, The Great Gatsby, Boardwalk Empire, Martin Scorsese’s Vinyl and Steven Soderbergh’s The Knick, Mosaic and Logan Lucky.

Most recently she worked with Amy Sherman Palladino on Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Reed Morano’s feature I Think We’re Alone Now and is currently working on the movie based on the Pulitzer Prize winning book The Goldfinch

It is with great pride that the New York Section is able to honor Ms. Robson-Foster with the 2018 VES Empire Award.

Synopsis: Tashi Bista dreams to install a makeshift wind turbine in Namdok, a remote village nestled high amongst the Himalayas of Nepal. Namdok, battered by wind and cold has been in darkness for centuries. Wearing Ray Bans to shield his eyes from the dust and just a leather jacket to insulate him from the bitter cold he surveys the village. He grew up in this region without electrical power. He is determined to bring lights to Namdok in an effort to prove himself to the skeptical village community. Tashi’s Turbine is a character driven film that shows the impact of one man’s dream for light, in a village waiting for development.

Q&A immediately following with Bong Joon Ho (Director/Co-Writer), Jon Ronson (Co-Writer), Darius Khondji (Cinematographer), Erik-Jan de Boer (Visual Effects Supervisor) and Catherine George (Costume Designer).

For 10 idyllic years, young Mija (An Seo Hyun) has been caretaker and constant companion to Okja—a massive animal and an even bigger friend—at her home in the mountains of South Korea. But that changes when a family-owned multinational conglomerate Mirando Corporation takes Okja for themselves and transports her to New York, where image obsessed and selfpromoting CEO Lucy Mirando (Tilda Swinton) has big plans for Mija’s dearest friend. With no particular plan but single-minded in intent, Mija sets out on a rescue mission, but her already daunting journey quickly becomes more complicated when she crosses paths with disparate groups of capitalists, demonstrators and consumers, each battling to control the fate of Okja…while all Mija wants to do is bring her friend home.

Deftly blending genres, humor, poignancy and drama, Bong Joon Ho (Snowpiercer, The Host) begins with the gentlest of premises—the bond between man and animal—and ultimately creates a distinct and layered vision of the world that addresses the animal inside us all. Okja, which also stars Paul Dano, Steven Yeun, Lily Collins and Giancarlo Esposito, will premiere exclusively on Netflix on June 28.

2017 New York VES Awards Celebration
When: Fri Mar 03, 2017 07:30pm to 10:00pm PST
Darren Aronofsky

Please join the VES New York Section for the 3rd Annual VES Awards after-after party as we celebrate the finest achievements in visual effects artistry – from New York’s VFX community to the VES Award winners around the globe.   This year, the Visual Effects Society is proud to present the VES Empire Award to visionary director Darren Aronofsky.  

From his first feature, the low-budget, black-and-white Pi, on through the powerful Requiem For A Dream, the mind bending sci-fi tale The Fountain,  the raw redemption of the The Wrestler, the chilling Black Swan and, most recently, the re-imagined biblical epic, Noah, Darren has never failed to break new ground and has consistently challenged audiences with his visceral style and unique vision.   His unflinching approach to storytelling and bold use of visual effects has firmly established him as an important and influential voice for a generation of filmmakers.  Born and bred in Brooklyn, he has remained true to his roots and continues to live and make films in New York both as a director and producer at his company Protozoa Pictures.   Beyond his artistic endeavors, Darren has also taken an active role in a number of environmental causes including climate change and animal welfare.    It is with great pride that the New York Section is able to honor Mr. Aronofsky with the 2017 VES Empire Award.

THE LITTLE PRINCE focuses on a young girl we come to know as “The Little Girl,” who is being prepared by her mother for the very grown-up world in which they live.  As The Little Girl adjusts to a new home, school and surroundings, her world is suddenly interrupted by an eccentric, kind-hearted neighbor we come to know as “The Aviator.”  The Aviator introduces her to a new world where anything is possible, a world that he himself was initiated into long ago by “The Little Prince.”  It’s there that The Little Girl embarks on a personal odyssey into the universe of The Little Prince, a world where it is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.  

 

THE LITTLE PRINCE was produced by Aton Soumache, Dimitri Rassam and Alexis Vonarb with Jinko Gotoh and Osborne serving as executive producers.  The international team of artists and actors working on the film includes Jeff Bridges (“The Aviator”), Rachel McAdams (“The Mother”), Mackenzie Foy (“The Little Girl”), Marion Cotillard (“The Rose”), James Franco (“The Fox”), Albert Brooks (“The Businessman”), Benicio Del Toro (“The Snake”), Ricky Gervais (“The Conceited Man”), Bud Cort (“The King”), and Riley Osborne (“The Little Prince”) with Paul Giamatti (“The Teacher”). THE LITTLE PRINCE includes an original score and songs by Hans Zimmer & Richard Harvey featuring Camille, production design by Lou Romano, Alexander Juhasz and Céline Desrumaux, stop-motion creative director Jamie Caliri, character design by Alexander Juhasz and Peter de Seve, editing by Matt Landon and Carole Kravetz, sound design by Tim Neilson, and an adapted screenplay by Irena Brignull and Bob Persichetti, based on a story conceived by Osborne.

From animation studio LAIKA comes an action-adventure set in a fantastical Japan. Clever, kindhearted Kubo (Art Parkinson) ekes out a humble living, telling stories to the people of his seaside town. But his relatively quiet existence is shattered when he accidentally summons a spirit from his past which storms down from the heavens to enforce an age-old vendetta. Now on the run, Kubo joins forces with Monkey (Charlize Theron) and Beetle (Matthew McConaughey), and sets out on a quest to save his family and solve the mystery of his fallen samurai warrior father. With the help of his shamisen – a magical musical instrument – Kubo must battle gods and monsters, including the vengeful Moon King (Ralph Fiennes) and the evil twin Sisters (Rooney Mara), to unlock the secret of his legacy, reunite his family, and fulfill his heroic destiny. The film, produced by Travis Knight and Arianne Sutner, also features the voices of George Takei, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, and Brenda Vaccaro.

Outstanding Achievement in Craft (Visual Effects)



“In the history of the movies, there may be no robot more alluring, more eerily fascinating to look at, than Ava, the star and subject of EX MACHINA.”

Ty Burr, The Boston Globe

 

“Ava has enough allure and cunning to become a classic noir robot vixen – an apocalyptic, silicon femme fatale.”

Maureen Dowd, The New York Times

 

“One reason for the success of EX MACHINA is that Ava is such a remarkable and compelling creation. Her look is an edgy combination of human and machine.”

Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

 

Caleb Smith (Domhnall Gleeson), a programmer at an internet-search giant, wins a competition to spend a week at the private mountain estate of the company’s brilliant and reclusive CEO, Nathan Bateman (Oscar Isaac). Upon his arrival, Caleb learns that Nathan has chosen him to be the human component in a Turing Test—charging him with evaluating the capabilities, and ultimately the consciousness, of Nathan’s latest experiment in artificial intelligence. That experiment is Ava (Alicia Vikander), an A.I. whose emotional intelligence proves more sophisticated––and more deceptive––than the two men could have imagined. Written and directed by Alex Garland.

Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ben Kingsley, Charlotte Le Bon, James Badge Dale

Synopsis: THE WALK – Twelve people have walked on the moon. Only one has ever, or will ever, walk in the immense void between the World Trade Center towers.

Philippe Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), guided by his real-life mentor, Papa Rudy (Ben Kingsley), is aided by an unlikely band of international recruits, who overcome long odds, betrayals, dissension and countless close calls to conceive and execute their mad plan. Robert Zemeckis, the master director of such marvels as FORREST GUMP, CAST AWAY, BACK TO THE FUTURE, POLAR EXPRESS and FLIGHT, again uses cutting edge technology in the service of an emotional, character-driven story. With innovative photorealistic techniques and IMAX® 3D wizardry, The Walk is genuine big-screen cinema, a chance for moviegoers to viscerally experience the feeling of reaching the clouds. 

It is also one of the rare live-action films that is a PG-rated, all-audience entertainment for moviegoers 8 to 80 – and a triumphant true story to boot. It is unlike anything audiences have seen before, a love letter to Paris and New York City in the 1970s, but most of all, to the towers of the World Trade Center.

Synopsis: THE WALK – Twelve people have walked on the moon. Only one has ever, or will ever, walk in the immense void between the World Trade Center towers.

Philippe Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), guided by his real-life mentor, Papa Rudy (Ben Kingsley), is aided by an unlikely band of international recruits, who overcome long odds, betrayals, dissension and countless close calls to conceive and execute their mad plan. Robert Zemeckis, the master director of such marvels as FORREST GUMP, CAST AWAY, BACK TO THE FUTURE, POLAR EXPRESS and FLIGHT, again uses cutting edge technology in the service of an emotional, character-driven story. With innovative photorealistic techniques and IMAX® 3D wizardry, The Walk is genuine big-screen cinema, a chance for moviegoers to viscerally experience the feeling of reaching the clouds. 

It is also one of the rare live-action films that is a PG-rated, all-audience entertainment for moviegoers 8 to 80 – and a triumphant true story to boot. It is unlike anything audiences have seen before, a love letter to Paris and New York City in the 1970s, but most of all, to the towers of the World Trade Center.

Event - ACES Pipeline (New York)
When: Thu Jul 16, 2015 07:00pm to 09:00pm PDT

The Post New York Alliance & the Visual Effects Society New York, in cooperation with The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, present:

Venue: The School of Visual Arts Theatre 333 West 23rd Street

PNYA & VES members are free / $10 for non members 

RSVP to [email protected]

 

After years of research and development, the Academy Color Encoding System (ACES) 1.0 has arrived! It is becoming the standard for color management and image interchange for motion pictures, television, commercials and other forms of professional content. This session will deliver an overview of the engineering and science as well as practical information needed to understand and implement ACES into postproduction and VFX pipelines.

ACES enables DPs and directors to better preserve their creative intent from on-set monitoring and look management, to dailies, editorial, VFX, the DI and on into archiving. It does this by addressing the long-standing color management issues facing today’s productions. ACES expands the creative palette with its high dynamic range and wide color gamut capabilities, while streamlining collaboration with standardized encodings and file formats.

Alex Forsythe, Academy technical lead on the ACES project, is traveling to New York to speak about the development of, and latest innovations in, ACES and how it helps color management and workflows. His presentation will be followed by a discussion about practical, real-world implications with several key members of the New York post production and VFX community.

Hear how ACES is being implemented with today’s tools on-set and at leading facilities in VFX, post and mastering. Seating is limited so please RSVP to [email protected] to reserve your place.
