Whether you’re a superfan or just curious, join us on Saturday, April 27 at 1:30 pm as Chris van Dyck, Fenner Rockliffe and Kenson Wang of CVD VFX detail the game cutscenes, including how to leverage game engine renders and deep compositing to tell a story in every frame.

The presentation will take place at Vancouver Film School (420 Homer Street). Tickets are $10 and $9 for groups of 5 or more (note that group pricing is only available through online advance sales).

There will be a meet-and-greet following the presentation at the licensed VFS Cafe.
