Future History: Three Inspiring Broadcast Projects Peer Into the Future

square Full Conference Access        triangleComputer Animation Festival Pass

Wednesday, 13 August, 3:45 - 5:30 pm
Petree Hall D

This session looks beyond entertainment to completely conceivable alternate realities. Look Effects reveals the behind-the-scenes process on development and evolution of two broadcast projects. For "Life After People," a History Channel special, Look's artists created an alternate future to support the program's scientist interviews. "Blown Away: Greensberg, Kansas", produced by Look for Discovery/Planet Green, shows the process of working with architects and visionaries to rebuild a town with a very green future. And Jellyfish Pictures demonstrates how their artists created a computer-generated 50-year time lapse for "Carbon Footprint" (also for Discovery), which is nominated for Best of Show in this year's Computer Animation Festival.
