Thursday’s workshop will explore high dynamic range (HDR) and cinematic virtual reality (VR) technologies with free presentations beginning at 10 a.m.

Lucas Wilson, founder of SuperSphere Productions, will present “Demystifying VR,” a brief walkthrough of the production and post-production world of VR delivery. As founder of SuperSphere Productions, Wilson oversees the creation of entertaining, immersive VR experiences for clients including FOX, DIRECTV, Samsung, and Reebok.

Prior to joining Tippett Studio, Hessler worked as a lead artist and technical director on Inside Out, Avatar, and The Chronicles of Narnia.

Robert Carroll, senior director of content solutions for imaging at Dolby Laboratories, will discuss Dolby Vision workflow in post production. An industry veteran, Carroll is responsible for production and post-production solutions for Dolby Cinema and Dolby Vision. His move into product development has resulted in five Emmy award-winning products.

“When you discuss emerging technologies like virtual reality or high dynamic range, it’s important to bring in leaders from those industries,” said Dave Van Hoy, president, Advanced Systems Group. “Our annual workshop remains relevant to content creators in the Bay Area because we examine important topics with speakers who are using these technologies for real-world projects.”
