MPC will speak at BFX Core and will be focussing on the technical work behind Exodus: Gods & Kings
Creative studio, MPC (Moving Picture Company) have confirmed that they will be speaking as part of BFX Core to reveal the behind the scenes information in the making behind Exodus: Gods & Kings.
This year, MPC’s Head of Crowd and MoCap, Adam Davis will take a look at how MPC’s team crushed Pharaoh armies & led over 600,000 slaves to freedom for the biblical epic Exodus: Gods & Kings. Davis will describe the artistic and technical challenges behind building the massive crowd armies required to fulfil Ridley Scott’s vision for the movie.
Adam Davis said: “Ridley Scott’s vision for Exodus: Gods and Kings gave me and my team a challenge of Biblical proportions. During my presentation I’ll be lifting the lid on the artistic and technical challenges behind building the massive armies and leading over 600,000 slaves to freedom.”
