Set entirely on computer screens, Searching breaks the mold and sets a new standard for the “on-screen” film. Join CEO Emery Wells as he leads a fireside chat and workshop with the duo who brought the film to life—Will Merrick and Nick Johnson.

They’ll also share how they used throughout the post-production stages when working with director Aneesh Chaganty.
