After two successful virtual editions, AnimationXpress.com's VFX and More (VAM) Summit is ready to host the third edition of the biggest gathering of VFX industry stalwarts on-ground.
Since the last edition, we have observed more visually rich content being created for OTT platforms, TV shows, advertisements and films in not just international markets but also in India. The OTT giants are now competing against each other with the increased productions of originals, multi-year deals, robust global programming plan and are bagging major awards. Covid has contributed to the growth of streaming content which accelerated other trends like integration of virtual production.
Now VFX studios are embracing experimentation and are building tools that use AI-assisted workflows and machine learning. With the advancement of technology, and with right budgets and planning, creators now have all the tools to bring their wildest stories to life. The question arises of how the creators will make use of the resources to satisfy the audiences' growing need for content and what are the innovations taking place in the VFX industry to further smoothen the workflows, enhance the visuals and become more budget friendly.
With the theme, 'Building a creator's world', VAM Summit 2023 will aim to understand the craft of storytelling, production pipeline, technological innovations, work environment, government policies and will also highlight the amazing content witnessed across various screens. It will continue to serve as a platform to help develop business opportunities for all the stakeholders and honour the best in the business with its dedicated VAM Awards.
