Virtual Production with Haz Dulull
February 18 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
In partnership with New Media Manitoba
New Media Manitoba and Film Training Manitoba are proud to present Director / Producer – HaZ Dulull. In this presentation and Q&A session, HaZ will talk about pivoting from his live action filmmaking career towards animated feature films and TV to stay relevant and proactive in Hollywood.
HaZ will share how indie filmmakers can harness game engines to tell high-concept stories that were impossible to achieve previously without massive budgets and resources.
Learn how a proof of concept pilot started his journey with real-time graphics and how that project lead to him getting tapped to direct the animated feature film –Mutant Year Zero (based on the acclaimed video game of the same name). This film was created entirely inside Unreal Engine as final pixel renders. This process helped prepared him to combine live-action with Real-time CG for the Virtual production shoot on the short film project ‘Percival’ utilizing the latest LED screen technology.
This presentation will be a deep dive into the creative, technical and business decisions he made on those projects. This session is visually driven with tons of behind the scenes footage breaking down the scenes in Unreal Engine, followed with a Q&A afterwards.
