Exceptional Minds Experience Workshop
On Oct. 10th, the Fox VFX Lab had the distinct pleasure to welcome Exceptional Minds Studio, a non-profit Animation and Visual Effects School for young adults on the Autism Spectrum, into the facility for a morning of tech demos and talks with our industry specialists. The focus of the visit was exposure to, and education of, the technology and tools used by the Fox VFX Lab in the virtual production of feature films and games. Different stations were set up around our large motion capture/live action capture volume, Snider Stage, where students could get hands-on experience using one of our Virtual Cameras, put on a 2k Headrig, and experience our stage in Virtual Reality (VR) with VR Goggles. They also got to hear from two of our team leads, Ryan Beagan and Edward Quintero, who discussed the ins and outs of Virtual Production as well as what a career in such a burgeoning field looks like. Fox VFX Lab was thrilled to show these bright, young students how the skills they are learning are contributing to this new frontier in filmmaking.
