Presentations – ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, ‘Maleficent’ and an ‘MPC Retrospective followed by a screening of Maleficent’
Guardians of the Galaxy – Part 1
Greg Fisher, Global Head of Animation will present a talk on Animating the many characters and creatures found in the film.
Guardians of the Galaxy – Part 2
Jo Plaete, Lead Crowd Simulation Technical Director at MPC will discuss how MPC Created the flying armadas in Guardians of the Galaxy. MPC were required to create an epic space battle spanning hundreds of shots, with tens of thousands of ships dogfighting. Significant effort was spent in designing unique flight and battle characteristics for each type of spaceship. This required improvements to MPC’s technology to allow for quick iterations and compelling results for the bulk of the ships via our crowd and fx tools, while streamlining the process for fine-tuning the motion of any ships to match the director’s vision.
