“The Adventures of Tintin” Screening

Posted by nicolasleduc, 15 December 2011 7:00 pm

 At Autodesk we are continually looking for ways to reach out to our artist communities. Typically we do this online here on The Area, but last night we were able to host a very special screening of “The Adventures of Tintin” followed by a Q&A between Autodesk’s David Morin with the film’s senior visual effects supervisor, Joe Letteri of Weta Digital.

Joe is quite remarkable—a four-time Oscar winner in the VFX category as visual effects supervisor for Avatar, King Kong, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King and The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. He also won a Sci-Tech Academy Award for co-developing the subsurface scattering technique that was used to bring Gollum to life, and has pioneered many of the digital processes that have become standard in today’s blockbuster visual effects.

Since we were limited to a capacity of 200 people at Tuesday night’s Los Angeles screening, we are bringing The Area visitors exclusive access to the fascinating Q&A with Joe shedding light on how Weta Digital helped turn the world of Hergé into 3D. The Q&A touches on previs, virtual production, use of Maya as a core 3D tool and MotionBuilder for real-time playback on set—and more.

Listen to the Q&A and let us know what you think!

The Q&A is audio-only.
