We are honored to have Artists from one of the leading visual effects studios, The Orphanage, present an inside peek into the animation process for both feature films and television commercials. Creature Supervisor Corey Rosen and Animation Director David Andrews will treat the audience to some of The Orphanage’s most recent work with a special focus on two projects – this summer’s blockbuster Live Free or Die Hard and Director Genndy Tartakoysky’s commercial for Nicoderm. For Die Hard, David Andrews will discuss the pre-production in Houdini and the process of animating that work, with specific attention to the creative challenges of translating pre-viz to final imagery. Corey Rosen will use a recent Nicoderm spot as a case study, analyzing how The Orphanage created a new aesthetic using the iconography of traditional 2D for 3D animations.
