This lecture will present fundamental strategies to achieve rich and
believable 3d environments. Questions raised include: What can be
carried over from the rich tradition of matte painting? How can
production be made as efficient as past miniature work and not languish
in technical pipeline quicksand? What new opportunities does this realm
present to the nature of storytelling and film experiences? Join noted
digital environments artist Eric Hanson of Visura Imaging in this visual
survey of an exciting trend.
