Paul Debevec and Mat Beck meets Munich ACM SIGGRAPH Chapter


Due to a lot of interest and the positive response to our previous talk with Paul Debevec, we are pleased to invite him to speak again on Sunday, 1st May at the FWU, Bavariafilmplatz.
Paul will give insight into “Practical Multispectral Lighting Reproduction”.

He will also talk about the latest achievements with the Light Stage X System:

„This talk will present recent results using the Light Stage X system at the University of Southern California’s Institute for Creative Technologies in creating photoreal digital characters (such as Furious 7 and The Jungle Book), filming live-action so that lighting can be changed in postproduction, and in reproducing real-world lighting conditions within a studio including complex multispectral illuminants. Our latest multispectral lighting reproduction research to be presented at SIGGRAPH 2016 shows a practical method for recording HDRI maps of incident illumination including spectral information, and reproducing this illumination on multispectral Light Stage LEDs lights with six spectral channels.”

At our recent events, Paul has presented “Light fields for VR” and “Scanning the President of the United States” ( check out our vimeo channel)
He is chief visual officer at the USC Institute for Creative Technologies in Pasadena/California.

Afterwards Mat Beck, ASC will talk about “VFX for TV, Cinematography in new age”
Mat Beck, ASC, is a visual effects supervisor, producer, cinematographer and director known for his work on over 70 motion pictures (such as Titanic, Spider-Man 2), numerous TV shows (such as Game of Thrones, True Detective) , commercials and music videos.
