Production Sessions

In Production Sessions, the world's most elite and talented computer graphic experts and creative geniuses explain their processes and techniques for creating compelling content. Following each 60-80 minute presentation, attendees ask questions about the challenges and issues associated with complex productions in:

  • CG animation
  • Visual Effects
  • Gaming applications
  • Virtual reality
  • Themed entertainment
  • Cultural exhibition, projection mapping, and other applications of computer graphics

Production Gallery

This all-new, one-of-a-kind exhibit recognizes the art, processes, and physical materials involved in the creation of major studio projects — not just the final piece on screen. The gallery features artwork, props, costumes, and more from recent film, VR, or game productions for an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters.
