VIEW Conference Director Maria Elena Gutierrez announced this week that artists around the world will be able view the 2020 VIEW Conference live streams for free. This includes over 120 talks, workshops, masterclasses and panels that are a part of this year’s virtual event — a conference that is held annually in Torino, Italy. There is also a paid option which allows for on-demand viewing after the live events (all talks and masterclasses will be available at least until 31 December, 2020 for those that purchase the paid option).
The event takes place in week, from October 18th through the 23rd. To register, visit the VIEW Conference web site registration page, here.
Speakers include Dennis Muren, Phil Tippett, Paul Debevec, Rob Bredow, Roger Guyett, Hal Hickel, Stefen Fangmeier, Weta Digital’s Anders Langlands, Jay Worth, and Framestore creative director Tim Webber. The full list of speakers (link) and presentations (link) can be found on the VIEW web site.
“There has been so much bad news in 2020,” says Conference Director Dr. Maria Elena Gutierrez, “so I’m thrilled to be able to share some great news for a change. Everyone could use some extra light and joy in their lives, so we have made the unprecedented decision to make this year’s conference completely free. Going virtual gives us a fantastic chance to grow the VIEW community, and to welcome into our family participants who are unable to travel to Torino or buy a full access pass.”
