The Visual Storytelling of Anthem

Creating a world is difficult, but creating a world as lush and richly detailed as that of Anthem, the new online multiplayer action role-playing from BioWare and EA, is a challenge of epic proportions.

This Saturday, April 27 at 1:30 pm, join Chris van Dyck, Fenner Rockliffe and Kenson Wang of CVD VFX, as the trio details the making of game cutscenes, from the jungles and deep waterfalls, to the alien landscapes full of fantastic vistas and wondrous ruins, including how they leveraged game engine renders and deep compositing to tell a story in every frame and create the visually stunning look of Anthem.

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). Online sales will close at midnight on Friday, April 26 but tickets will be available for purchase at the venue on Saturday.

One lucky attendee will also win a one-year Production Collective license from Foundry valued at over $10,000!

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

When: Saturday, April 27 @ 1:30 pm (doors open at 1 pm)
Where: Vancouver Film School
Digital Media Campus, Main Theatre
420 Homer Street
Vancouver, Canada
Admission: $10 // Groups (5+): $9*
* Group pricing only available through on-line advance sales
Admission includes GST.
