Recording: The Digital Humans are Ready for Their Close Up, Mar 11, 2023

The film and TV industry has been undergoing a massive paradigm shift in recent years thanks to real-time technology. We’ve seen how game engines have completely transformed filmmaking with virtual production. The next frontier is real-time, believable digital humans. New cloud-based tools are making it possible, for the first time, for anyone to create fully rigged photorealistic digital humans in just minutes – an unprecedented leap for something that was previously specialized, time-consuming, and expensive. This panel will host a range of filmmakers who are utilizing real-time technology and digital humans in compelling and unexpected ways - on projects ranging from films, to VR experiences, to animated series such as Netflix’s ‘Love Death & Robots.’
