Preproduction is obviously a key stage in producing a television programme or a film. For all that, the organisation of its different parts – writing, storyboard, layout – and their interrelations are handled in different ways depending on the type of production and the identity of the studios. The round table will examine the “fundamentals” to be respected to meet the twin challenges of quality and productivity.
Teaching Mocap : where, when, how ?
Rémi Brun (Mocaplab)
Motion capture is a widely used tool among others. One of its most experienced practitioners will report on its relevant areas of application, its constraints, its recent developments and prospects.
Bruno Seznec (Piste Rouge)
Sound for animation is always made out to be the “poor relation” of production. Yet its crucial importance for the quality of a programme cannot be disputed. The session will endeavour to make clear the practical details of working on sound for animation, such as they should be understood by all professionals.
