The Promise: Storytelling meets Virtual Production (EN)

What is Virtual Production? Where does it come from and where is the journey going? Is post-production increasingly becoming a part of production? Is real film increasingly becoming a sub-form of animated film?

In their introductory talk, Christian Iseli, head of the Immersive Arts Space at the ZHdK, and Michael Schaerer, professor of Film Editing, clarify the most important terms and, with the help of examples, show the development, the latest status and the possibilities opening up for Virtual Production, also in this country.

Virtually Real: Shooting in Virtual Spaces

What does working with virtual production tools mean in concrete terms for the director? How does immersion and spatial perception change when the same feature film – once shot in real motifs and once with photogrammetrically captured virtual spaces in front of greenery – is compared in effect?

Research associate Norbert Kottmann and media psychologist Miriam Loertscher will provide insight into the practical aspects of the ZHdK research project Virtually Real and the associated audience research.

Virtual Production and Digital Humans – Aktuelle Forschung und zukünftige Herausforderungen

Abstract von Volker Helzle

Der Vortrag gibt Einblicke in die Forschungsarbeit am Animationsinstitut der Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg. Forschung, Softwareentwicklung, Lehre, und projektbezogene Erfahrungen mit virtuellen Produktionsverfahren und digitalen Darstellern werden erörtert. Beide Bereiche sind nicht zwingend miteinander verbunden und zeigen doch vergleichbar dynamische Entwicklungen in den letzten 18 Monaten.

Welche Anforderungen stellt die Zukunft an die kommende Generation von Medienschaffenden? Der Vortrag versucht hierfür eine (immersive) Prognose zu stellen.
