LAPPG (3/12) – Post Production Magic

Join us Thursday, March 12th at LAPPG’s monthly meet-up.

What you’ll see: Post Production Magic: Time consuming tracking, detailed rotoscoping, high end paint and beauty work, and other post production effects once only done in large studios can now be done on your laptop or home office. Mary Poplin from Imagineer Systems shows you how to use the same planar tracking techniques used on movies like Casino Royale, Pirates of the Caribbean, and X-Men on any project and any budget. Mary will show you how to make your project achieve a big screen look at small screen price tag; and how cinematographers, VFX artists, editors, and directors can easily create difficult visual effects with a new power tool in their tool box. When paired with Boris FX BCC Continuum Complete, an AE, mocha, and Premiere or Avid pipeline can really start to sing.

Time: 7pm

Location: Crossroads School for Arts & Sciences @Roth Hall
