Co-director Arvid and myself will be showing up at EUE (End User Event) in Utrecht, Netherlands this year to talk about recent VFX projects such as SWARM and WATCH. Il be going over some of the processes and techniques that were developed to not compromise on quality but saved render/production time in order to meet the tiny schedules. A number of custom shaders and scripts were also developed to handle the large data sets and colour retargeting.
EUE has been described as Siggraph in a pub, with your mates and no commercial stuff.
Il see you there.
