Fix It in Pre!
Mirko Lempert (assistant professor at the Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts) and Martin Christensen (creative director) have created an intuitive previsualization tool that is affordable, easy to apply in virtual production processes and facilitates artistic collaboration. The system itself is based on game engines and allows directors, scriptwriters, cinematographers, set designers and digital artists to create, manipulate and interact with CG-environments and objects in real-time. Lempert and Christensen will present the tool on stage and the system will also be on display in the expo area during the event.

Wonder Buffalo - The VR Experience
Wonder Buffalo: The VR Experience is an interactive, room-scale HTC Vive experience that incorporates photogrammetry, volumetric video, responsive audio and interactivity with CG assets.
The VR piece centers on Ann, 16, a Thai-American teen coping with body dysmorphia and an overbearing mother, who struggles to find her place in the world. In search of freedom, she embraces cosplay and ultimately finds a hero. Herself. But only after countless years of pressure from her own mother to lose weight...
The Wonder Buffalo VR experience begins in a colorful bedroom captured in photogrammetry. Ann's eclectic and bright bedroom mirrors her internal clash between Thai and American cultures.
By exploring Ann's eccentricity and unlocking her six strength objects you transform Ann's room into a cosmic comic book kaleidoscope and ultimately unleash Ann as her own superhero character, Wonder Buffalo.
Writer and director Christina T. Berg & producer Drew Diamond will also be presenting on stage. Read more: WONDER BUFFALO - A SHOWCASE IN INTERACTIVE STORYTELLING & NEXT-GEN TECHNOLOGY EXPLORATION
