Panel Presentation: CHAPPiE, A Sum of his Parts

Chappie_01

Vancouver ACM SIGGRAPH is excited to announce a wonderful panel presentation on CHAPPiE, A Sum of his Parts on Wednesday, May 20, 2015.

In the near future, crime is patrolled by a mechanized police force. When one police droid, CHAPPiE, is stolen and given new programming, he becomes the first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself. Come join us as a panel of leads and supervisors from Image Engine, representing each stage of production, from asset builds through to final compositing, give you a glimpse of what it took to breath life into the digital title character CHAPPiE.

The Image Engine Panel

Chris Harvey – VFX Supervisor
Barry Poon – Asset Supervisor
Earl Fast – Animation Lead
Greg Massie – Lead FX TD
Mark Wendell – CG Supervisor
Rob Bourgeault – Lighting Supervisor
