VIEW Conference Unveils 2012 Highlights
In this multi-day event, participants will explore ways in which technology, society, economies and industries may evolve. The workshop will bring together leaders working in many industries to flex their creative powers. Together, they and the participants will design state-of-the–art cars, personal robots, miniscule medical equipment, smart running shoes, self-healing buildings, and, of course, future games and movies. Led by Glenn Entis co-founder of PDI, former chief visual officer for Electronic Arts, and now a founding partner in Vanage Capital, and Tom Wujec, Autodesk fellow and author of three books on innovation, the Creative Bootcamp promises to be a lively, interactive workshop that propels participants into new worlds of the future.
“With the Creative Bootcamp, we’re extending VIEW 2012 beyond entertainment into the real world in exciting new ways,” Gutierrez says. “It will be a wonderful adventure for the people who choose to attend.”
In addition to the speakers, VIEW 2012 again offers its extremely popular, practical workshops geared toward professionals and aspiring professionals who want to perfect their craft. A list of these workshops, which participants can reserve in advance, is on the VIEW conference website.
Preceding the VIEW conference, the annual VIEWFest, the Italian evolution of Resfest, features a screening of Disney/Pixar’s Nemo in stereo 3D, a compilation of Pixar Shorts, and the European premiere of Siggraph 2012’s Electronic Theater, a selection of the best short films, visual effects excerpts, scientific visualizations, game cinematics, and commercials.
“We are so fortunate to be able to bring such talented and highly-honored artists to Turin,” says Gutierrez. “I am grateful so many people are willing to help us continue building the best digital technology conference in Italy. They inspire me. I know they will inspire all the professionals and aspiring professionals who attend. I cannot wait for this conference to begin.”
VIEW Conference 2012 is made possible with the support of: Piedmont Region, Province of Turin, City of Turin, Compagnia di San Paolo, Fondazione CRT, Chamber of Commerce of Turin and Autodesk.
