Markus Ristich

Head Of Pipeline
The Third Floor

For years, Markus Ristich has been a key player in the VFX industry's transition to virtual production - a style of filmmaking that bridges the gap between fully-rendered CG done in large VFX studios and the gritty on-set live-action world.

As a member of the team behind Genesis, MPC's end-to-end virtual production toolkit inspired by the techniques used on The Jungle Book and The Lion King. He currently works as Head of Pipeline at The Third Floor, Inc, the world's largest previsualization company, integrating real-time feedback in early production stages for filmmakers seeking to visualize complex CG scenes.
