CNC Marketing Director Melissa Albert and I paid a visit to LA this week with meetings at Blustreak Media at Universal, the USC Institute for Creative Technologies, Dreamworks Animation, and Lava Bear Films. It was a chance to meet with friends and colleagues, discuss the work everyone is doing, and explore future collaborations.
Thanks to our friends Jane Hartwell and Markus Manninen for lunch on the Dreamworks Animation campus. And thanks to Paul Debevec, CNC’s newest advisory board member, for touring us through his state-of-the-art Light Stage X at USC (see photo of us, snapped by Paul). Previous generations of his light stages, which aid the creation of photoreal digital actors, have underpinned the Academy Award-winning VFX in Spider-Man 2, King Kong, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Avatar.
