Today, Chaos Group announces the lineup for Total Chaos @ SIGGRAPH (previously V-Ray Days), featuring in-depth production talks on Captain Marvel, Game of Thrones and more. Total Chaos will also play host to “Vlado in Renderland,” covering the latest in V-Ray research and development, as well as a new “Women in Technology” panel featuring speakers from VFX production studios such as Zoic Studios and Pixomondo.
The free two-day event will be held in room 409A of the Los Angeles Convention Center, on the second-floor concourse. Presentations begin Tuesday, July 30 at 10:00 a.m. While the sessions are open to all SIGGRAPH attendees, seating may be limited. Due to the exclusive content being shown, recording is not permitted.
For the second year in a row, Digital Domain will dive deep into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, exploring recent films like Captain Marvel. Game of Thrones’ iconic credits will be discussed by Elastic Art Director and Head of 3D Kirk Shintani, who will chart a 10-year journey from season one through eight. Pixomondo will also be on hand to break down a fiery space battle recently featured on Seth MacFarlane’s The Orville.
On day two, industry players from Pixomondo, Magnopus, ARwall and Zoic Studios will lead an all-women panel focused on the best ways to carve out a niche in CG. Using insights from their careers, the speakers will explain how to identify strengths, advance skill sets and find an authentic voice in a competitive industry.
Other presentations will cover visual architectural design (KPF), real-time workflows (Method Studios) and the latest developments from Chaos Research, the new research arm of Chaos Group. Corona advances in rendering caustics and scene assembly with V-Ray for Houdini (Ingenuity Studios) will also be shown.
