Award-Winning Visual Effects Practitioners Announced For VFX: Script To Screen 2016
31 May 2016 : Seán Brosnan
VFX Script To Screen 2016
Top level Irish and international visual effects practitioners will converge in Dublin next week for visual effects training programme VFX: Script to Screen 2016.

The programme - co-funded by the Irish Film Board and the Creative Europe programme of the EU - will offer Irish and European filmmakers a "big picture" understanding of visual effects and new and innovative digital production processes and technologies, including virtual production and VR/AR.

The programme is designed in collaboration with the VFX Association of Ireland, which is comprised of Irish award winning VFX companies Windmill Lane (‘Brooklyn’, ‘Rebellion’, ‘Vikings’, ‘Titanic: Blood and Steel’, ‘Dracula Untold’) Screen Scene (‘Independence Day: Resurgence’, ‘Game of Thrones’, ‘Room’, ‘Ripper Street’), Egg Post Production (‘Ghosthunters: On Icy Trails’, ‘Sinbad’) and Piranha Bar (‘The Last Hijack’). Participants on the programme are experienced filmmakers from Ireland and across Europe, including Finland, Belgium, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovakia, Slovenia and the UK.

Commenting on the programme Sorcha Loughnane, Programme Director VFX: Script to Screen said: "This course really showcases the wealth of Irish digital production talent we have in Ireland. This year has proved that the Irish film industry is a world leader, and to have participants travelling from throughout Europe to learn from our best and brightest is a huge endorsement of the role our technical and creative talent has played in that success."

An exciting highlight of this year's programme involves a live VFX shoot led by VFX supervisor Ed Bruce, cinematographer Tim Fleming (‘Rebellion’, ‘AD: The Bible Continues’, ‘Once’) and director John Hayes (‘Game of Thrones’, ‘Vikings’, ‘Camelot’) incorporating elements of visual effects, special effects and stunts, as well as real time virtual production and virtual reality/augmented reality demos.

Other Irish and international talent tutoring on the programme will include VFX Supervisor Murray Barber (‘Doctor Who’, ‘High Rise’), Ronald Grauer, VFX Supervisor, Benuts (‘After Love’, ‘The Last Diamond’), Lisa Kelly, VFX Producer (‘Skyfall’, ‘The Secret Scripture’) and Claudia Dehmel, VFX Producer (‘The DaVinci Code’, ‘The Dark Knight Rises’).

In addition Alexander Lentjes, animation producer, director, consultant, specialising in 3D Stereoscopic and 4D (Lego Nexo Knights 4D, Wombles, Mjolnir – Thor’s Hammer 4D) will discuss developments in digital technologies including 4D, VR, AR and stereoscopic 3D; Folker Schamel of Spinor in Germany will demonstrate real time virtual production and VR shooting techniques; and Paki Smith, Production Designer, Art Director (‘Viva’, ‘High Rise’, ‘The Dark Knight Rises’) will discuss production design and VFX.
