Digital Storytelling is back and we are arranging a two hour Masterclass on the making of Gravity with Theodor Groeneboom, Lead Compositor at Framestore CFC. Theodor won the Visual Effect Society (VES) Award for Outstanding Compositing in a Feature Motion Picture for his work on Gravity, and many remember his presentation of his work on Avatar at Digital Storytelling 2010.
Alfonso Cuaron’s masterpiece Gravity was one of last year’s great movie experiences. The film has won a number of awards for visual effects, sound, cinematography and art direction, and took home seven of the ten Academy Awards it was nominated for including best director, best visual effects and best cinematography. Gravity has set new standards for visual effects and how close collaboration between director, producer, cinematographer and VFX will effect future film productions.
The Making of Gravity Masterclass is designed primarily for film and VFX professionals, but the more than average film enthusiast will enjoy looking behind the scenes to see how these cutting edge visual effects were created.
The presentation will give detailed insight into the entire film production process from script and pre-production through shooting and post production. As Sequence Lead Compositor and On-set Technical Director, Theodor worked closely with both Director Alfonso Cuaron and Cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki on the VFX sequences.
* Insights into the close collaboration between the director, DOP and the VFX team on a visual effects heavy feature film
* How and why the lines between pre-production and post-production are becoming increasingly blurred in film production
* How art and science was combined to create the images seen on-screen in Gravity
Masterclass tickets are NOK 300 and are sold on a first-come-first-served basis by purchasing tickets online at tthe Digital Storytelling Shopify store.
The masterclass is arranged with the support of the NFI:lab at the Norwegian Film Institute and will take place in the film auditorium at the Westerdals School of Communication, Oslo Norway on April 5th from 3 pm to 5 pm.
