I will be speaking there about the “Creation of (Interactive) Virtual 3D Characters” on the 31st of May, here’s the description of the talk:

This talk will go into the use and creation of (Interactive) Virtual 3D Characters. Jasper (aka Brekel) will begin by examining some examples of 3D characters from several productions.And will then go into how current advances in technology enable creating live and interactive characters. We’ll end by examining some of this latest technology up close, including motion capture hardware and the latest in markerless facial capture technology.
