Stiller Studios has 1 of the most advanced and VFX-friendly motion control/green screen setups in the world. Tomas Wall and Hugo Guerra will take you through the process of how the game cinematic, "Homefront: The Revolution" was created, using leading studio and motion control technology supported by Autodesk software—in preproduction, live on set, and in postproduction.

Key Learnings

  • Optimisation of VFX in production.
  • How to save up to 70% of post-production by fixing problems in pre-production.
