FILMMAKERS LIVE: THIS ACTRESS DOES NOT EXIST - THOUGHTS ON THE FUTURE OF CINEMA
Computer-generated imagery (CGI) has been used in motion pictures for 40 years. Recently, the trend has been to animate actual people — with the goal of creating virtual actors. James Cameron's AVATAR was a milestone in this process. His most recent film, ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL, which was in theaters in February 2019, set new standards in motion capture. A real actress was practically recreated and her movements coordinated within a computer; completely virtual actors are probably not far off. Where is moviemaking headed in the age of computer-animated production? Is it even possible to imagine it without people? Experts from various disciplines such as film studies, visual effects, psychology, theology, cultural criticism, the digital realm, acting, directing, and production design discuss the future of audiovisual reception.
