" Visual Algorithms and their Role in Modern Digital Feature Film Production"  Simon Robinson

Seminar on Friday 4th July 2008; 2pm-3pm BST Room1:10 Kilburn Building the University of Manchester UK

Access Grid Virtual Venue: " University of Manchester Room1:10"  http://manchester.siggraph.org/ 

Based around a light introduction to live-action feature-film compositing, this talk gives an overview into the real-world application of signal-processing in post-production. While human artistry itself is still the hub of 2D digital effects work, I show how it can be greatly assisted today by the use of appropriate algorithms with appropriate implementations. As the film industry is rapidly evolving, I will also identify our favourite research areas for the next generation of tools.

No equations will be harmed during this discussion.
