The sixth computer graphics international conference CG EVENT KYIV 2019 will be held in Kyiv on September 22, 2019
This conference has already become a significant event and a meeting point for everyone who works in visual content creation sphere. The content which is harder to separate by film, animation, games, VR and archivis. All these areas gradually merge into one diverse industry which creates new worlds, emotions and changes perception of the world.
CG EVENT — is not about the new versions or feature lists. It’s about trends, art, development, intellect of any origin and, of course, it’s about people. About those who create all this crazy content.
Those who do “something by hands” are precisely meet on CG EVENT. Professionals are being hired exactly on CG EVENT: artists, animators, composers, render-artists, modellers and many other specialists with unpronounceable professions live exactly here. And for all of them we’re preparing a dense programme.
This year’s trend — the usage of game engines beyond game worlds. UE4 and Unity break templates of traditional pipelines, embedding to the animation production, VFX and even motion design. Many presentations are dedicated to this.
Visual effects for movies will be traditionally represented by the biggest international and local studios. Framestore London and Kyiv’s Postmodern will reveal secret details from the last projects. Moreover Postmodern prepares huge section concerning various stages of VFX production.
Game studios will also respond symmetrically: Wargaming, AB-Games, Sperasoft and Room8 Studio will share information about their projects and not only about game projects. Have you ever thought that Wargaming creates musical videos for foreign musicians?!
Animation? Lots of it! In various genres, applications and forms. From storyboarding in Blender to classical directing, which lies in the heart of everything.
Artificial intelligence? Yep, we couldn’t leave it as well. We will scare children and animators with AI. Mental Drive studio will show its provocative experiments with neural networks in films and post-production areas. Sergey Tsyptsyn’s psychedelic performance about the future of visual content will have a classification “adults only” — such information is extremely shocking for artificial intelligence.
We discuss technologies, including ergonomic furniture but forget that People are the basis for this upgraded tech machine. “Kitchen talks” panel will be dedicated to this and frank stand-ups from Egor Borschevsky (Postmodern) and Yuri Lebedev (3dyriki.com) and Sasha “Gorec” Podgorny (Astermann, Magic CG). And of course, about money — Konstantin Kharitonov (Celebro Inc.) has prepared sociological research with debunking myths.
The huge motion design section will be represented with Maxon, Alex Maltsev, Alexey Alexandrovich and others. Cinema 4D has invaded 3D market with new releases, one better than the other. Plus good news from Chaos Group about new renders and future technologies
Virtual production, cloud calculations, wars of renderers, Nvidia RTX expansion, AI from Autodesk, super hardware from HP and digital actors — in the epic reportage by Sergey Tsyptsyn from SIGGRAPH 2019.
The key partner of the conference will become HP company, which creates a wide spectrum of equipment, including hardware for CG.
Technical partner of the conference — DreamTech company (Kyiv), which will bring the hardware from the future to their stand.
Also we’re waiting for Roman Guro with his unique master-classes. 2D section will gather together the strongest artists. The traditional 2D tournament — fun pics speedy drawing — will allow you to win a real hardware prizes.
