Ev­ery­thing you need to know

VIEW Con­fer­ence is one of the events on the yearly cir­cuit that of­fers its at­ten­dees a slightly dif­fer­ent ap­proach. Of course, it boasts a large num­ber of ex­cep­tion­ally tal­ented speak­ers, in­clud­ing Joe Let­teri, and Os­car win­ners Paul De­bevec and Hal Hickel, among many oth­ers. How­ever it’s not just the level of key­note speak­ers that there is to look for­ward to. VIEW has broad­ened its scope over the years and now there is some­thing for any­body with even a pass­ing in­ter­est in CG an­i­ma­tion, from vis­ual ef­fects and games de­vel­op­ment to VR, which has had an ex­plo­sive im­pact on the show sea­son this year and looks to be here to stay.

“This year’s VIEW Con­fer­ence con­tin­ues our tra­di­tions, while adding even more great speak­ers to our line-up to show­case games and vir­tual re­al­ity.” These words from Dr Maria Elena Gu­tier­rez, the show’s di­rec­tor, echo what looks to be the over­all feel­ing of VIEW 2017.

Many con­fer­ences and shows have an el­e­ment of recog­ni­tion for work un­der­taken in the months run­ning up to it, be it the lat­est big stu­dio re­lease or a tech­nol­ogy seen that pushes bound­aries. What VIEW of­fers, though, feels more com­mu­nity-ori­ented, with the abil­ity to en­ter your work as a short an­i­ma­tion, some­thing within a so­cial con­text, or as an Ital­ian project, help­ing to pro­mote lo­cal tal­ent. It’s worth not­ing that the lo­cal au­thor­i­ties sup­port the event, some­thing not al­ways seen else­where.

VIEW is rightly proud of the fact that over the week, speak­ers and at­ten­dees get to mix and min­gle, re­mov­ing the tra­di­tional bar­ri­ers of the stage, let­ting peo­ple talk nat­u­rally, rather than sim­ply lis­ten, grow­ing the event’s ap­peal hugely.

If you are look­ing to end your year with a broad se­lec­tion of talks and work­shops from some of the big­gest names in the in­dus­try, in a beau­ti­ful lo­ca­tion, then head to Turin for VIEW, which prom­ises to tick all the boxes and be in­spir­ing as well as in­for­ma­tive.
