SIGGRAPH 2015: August 9 – 13, Los Angeles

We are honoured to be participating as panelists at this year’s Siggraph conference.

Image Engine Presents: Breathing Life into CHAPPiE


CHAPPiE is a unique action sci-fi comedy by Director Neill Blomkamp, whose lead actor is a digitally-created, childlike robot who conveys a rich array of emotions as he interacts with the human characters around him.

Join the Supervisors from Image Engine as they reveal how a small production team brought Chappie to life, delivering nearly 1000 shots and over 60 minutes of screen time to our digital, believable hero. With a wide array of visuals covering concept design to asset builds, on-set capture to final performance, postvis to final integration, this panel will present a behind-the-scenes look at the challenges involved in creating a character that audiences not only accept as real but connect to, from the first shot on-screen.
