Over the summer, DGC National, in partnership with DGC Ontario, PIXOMONDO, and William F. Whites, hosted the Virtual Production Workshop for DGC Directors.
For the DGC Ontario Members who consider themselves true Trekkies, working on Star Trek: Strange New Worlds was nothing short of a career milestone! We sit down with some of the Directors and Art Directors who navigated this latest instalment in the Star Trek universe as seasoned fans, using cutting-edge motion graphics and Virtual Production technology while paying homage to a nostalgic aesthetic. Read our interview with Strange New Worlds Directors Christopher Byrne and Amanda Row, Art Director Jody Clement, Motion Graphics Art Director Timothy Peel, and Executive Producer/President & CEO of Whizbang Films, Frank Siracusa.
In our Virtual Production episode, we sit down with Cinematographer Jeremy Benning (The Expanse, Condor), DGC Ontario VFX Supervisor Sumeet Vats (The Expanse, Dark Matter) and Pixomondo VFX &VAD Supervisor Nathaniel Larouche (Watchmen, The Umbrella Academy) to discuss this game-changing technology's impact on craft, prep and the future of production.
