• Visual Media Lab Workshop: Virtual Cinematography

    How will film and TV shows be produced with new technologies in the future? What new skills will we need in the process? How will virtual worlds, visual effects and animations be created? International speakers from the film industry will discuss these questions during the event on the topics of virtual production, high dynamic range and wide color gamut.

    After a five-year break, the Visual Media Lab (VML), an institute integrated into the Audiovisual Media program of Hochschule der Medien, Stuttgart is organizing a VML conference in March 2023. Focussing on topics such as virtual production, high dynamic range and wide color gamut, speakers from the industry are also welcome to network with other experts and talented students. The top-class speakers will offer exciting lectures on the topics color management, extended realities, LED lighting technology, and many more. Among others, the image design team of the Netflix series "1899" will be present.
