Video: Democratizing real-time filmmaking techniques for indie devs

In this GDC 2020 virtual talk Glassbox Technologies’ Norman Wang breaks down what it will take to democratize real-time VFX and virtual production tools for all levels of content creators — including indie devs.

It was a thorough, in-depth look at the state of real-time VFX work in film and what’s required to get the relevant tech into more hands, from updating school curriculums, to cutting hardware and software costs without sacrificing the quality of the end product, and beyond.

Wang’s talk was fascinating, and now you can watch it for yourself anytime you like over on the official GDC YouTube channel!

In addition to this presentation, the GDC Vault and its accompanying YouTube channel offers numerous other free videos, audio recordings, and slides from many of the recent Game Developers Conference events, and the service offers even more members-only content for GDC Vault subscribers.

Those who purchased All Access passes to recent events like GDC or VRDC already have full access to GDC Vault, and interested parties can apply for the individual subscription via a GDC Vault subscription page. Group subscriptions are also available: game-related schools and development studios who sign up for GDC Vault Studio Subscriptions can receive access for their entire office or company by contacting staff via the GDC Vault group subscription page.
