13:15 – 14:45
This session will provide an exploration of the visual effects that brought Neill Blomkamp’s dystopian vision of the future to life in his latest sci-fi epic Elysium. From art direction and on-set considerations to visual effects post-production, Visual Effects Supervisor for the production, Peter Muyzers will lead a discussion around the challenges involved in creating two polarized worlds: a ruined earth policed by droids, and the orbital man-made planet of Elysium, with full ecosystem and all the luxuries of wealth. The presentation will focus on several artistic and technical challenges in creating the space station, droids, space ships, extensive detailed environments and other effects throughout the movie, as well as discussing the experience of working with Blomkamp, and the efforts involved in making his vision a reality.
