Remote Control: The Virtual Production Conference Live on September 17, 2020.
After months of re-imagining, rebuilding and troubleshooting, new concepts around remote production and collaboration have taken shape. We’ve asked several industry leaders to give you their insights and lessons learned, in short and sweet presentations.
In this episode, our host Buzz Hays of @Google Cloud Tech curates a discussion on virtual production featuring top content creator Matt Workman of @Cinematography Database and hears from a panel of experts with @Producers Guild of America on how virtual production is being used today. Moderated by Jenni Ogden, the panel includes Christina Lee Storm of @Netflix , John Canning with @Digital Domain , and producer/cinematographer Kathryn Brillhart.
