We look forward to the upcoming event, happening 23-27 October in Turin, Italy
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.
