IMMERSION 2014 KEYNOTER KATIE FICO

IMMERSION 2014 KEYNOTER KATIE FICO | Durff | Scoop.it

IMMERSION 2014 #i2014 addresses the personal and cultural impact of digital technologies such as wearable computing (e.g., Google Glass and Samsung Gear), virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MXR), mechanical and neural interfaces, affective computing (systems that can recognize, interpret, process, and simulate human feelings and emotions), neuro-gaming technologies (that are used to create adaptive and radically compelling game experiences), 3D printing, personal robotics, virtual currencies and economies (universal digital micropayments, Bitcoin and related cryptocurrencies), telepresence, virtual worlds, simulations, game-based learning and training systems, immersive MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), and fully immersive environments such as caves and domes.

Lisa Durff's insight:

 

BOSTON, MA - APRIL 9, 2014 - The Immersive Education Initiative today announced that Disney's Katie Fico will keynote IMMERSION 2014 in Los Angeles, California, this June. The award-winning Stereoscopic Supervisor at Walt Disney Animation Studios led the stereo team through the challenge of designing dimensionality for the Academy Award®-winning animated film Frozen to enhance the emotional beats and further immerse the audience in a vibrant and colorful world.

In her keynote address, Frozen: The Art of 3D Storytelling, Katie will share with IMMERSION 2014attendees the ways in which Disney uses 3D technology to create unique and deeply compelling immersive experiences.

Frozen is a sweeping epic tale, filled with magical ice and swirling snow. For the film Katie and her team utilized stereo 3D and depth to enhance the story and emotionally engage viewers in a way that is not possible with traditional movies.

Drawing on her work on Frozen, Katie will explain how stereo 3D is used as a storytelling tool today what we expect to see and experience in future Disney films.

Her keynote will also address the importance of stereo 3D as a business tool, and how this relatively new technology is already impacting the world around us.

Recently awarded with "Best Stereographer" and "Best Stereo" by the International 3D Society for her work on Frozen, Katie has worked on a number of feature films during her career at Walt Disney Animation Studios, including Dinosaur, Chicken Little, Meet the Robinsons, Bolt, Tangled, and Paperman.
