VFx is the most significant tool set for storytellers since the advent of moving pictures. This talk will cover the unique ways VFx work to enhance and build storycraft and will be of interest to filmmakers and VFx artists. This session has been scheduled as a preview for the October 26 Storytelling Masterclass which will expand on the elements of film storytelling and will include a case study of how visual effects can be used to establish the story world in feature films.
