Vancouver ACM SIGGRAPH is excited to announce a wonderful panel presentation on the VFX of Chappie on Wednesday, May 20, 2015.
In the near future, crime is patrolled by a mechanized police force. When one police droid, CHAPPiE, is stolen and given new programming, he becomes the first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself. Come join us as a panel of leads and supervisors from Image Engine, representing each stage of production, from asset builds through to final compositing, give you a glimpse of what it took to breath life into the digital title character CHAPPiE.
